Police and Fire Service to host joint web chat in Barrow

Posted by StreetSafe on November 15, 2011

Barrow police are joining forces with the Fire and Rescue Service to host an online meeting this week to provide local residents with the chance to ‘chat’ with some of the area’s top emergency service personnel from the comfort of their own homes.
By logging onto on Wednesday 16th November between 6.30pm and 8.30pm, residents will be given a chance to speak to members of their emergency services and ask them questions, by taking part in an online meeting.
At the same time as raising questions to local Inspector David Bosson about issues in their local area or sharing any concerns they may have, Roger Exley, Deputy Locality Manager for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service will also be in the hot seat and able to answer questions about fire safety.
Another guest taking part in the web chat is Sergeant John McIntosh who is a member of the Neighbourhood Police team and has responsibility for Dalton and the rural communities.
Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector David Bosson said: “Community meetings are great ways for residents to put forward their views on what police should be doing and how, and online meetings have been a great way to get people together to express their views. This is the first time in Barrow we have been joined by a member of Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service and I am looking forward to it.”
Roger Exley from Barrow Fire & Rescue said: “We know that the recent web chats have been successful and the community have taken the opportunity to log on and ask the questions they want to in a convenient, simple way – without having to leave their homes or families.
“I’m looking forward to taking part and hope that lots of people join us.”
