BRIDGWATER residents can give their thoughts on possible changes to their fire service at a drop-in event in town over the summer.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service has launched a public consultation on various proposals designed to save money and reflect the modern needs of the population it covers.

The proposals include the possibility of closing Porlock fire station within the Exmoor National Park, as well as reducing the number of fire engines being crewed at Bridgwater, Martock, Taunton and Yeovil.

As well as being able to give their views online, concerned residents can visit a handful of drop-in sessions across the county to put their views across and speak to fire staff directly.

The Bridgwater drop-in will be on August 27 between noon and 4pm at Bridgwater Library.
