We are campaigning to save Clapham fire station from closure. We’re calling on the Mayor to drop his proposal to close Clapham Fire station.
We want our residents to have locally based emergency services to deal quickly with incidents and keep you safe. We know that you want to keep Clapham fire station open.
Why is it important to keep Clapham fire station open?
- The Mayor’s proposals will actually mean response times rising, not falling as they have done in previous years.
- Closing Clapham fire station threatens to increase your concerns about safety and could undermine the preventative work that fire fighters have done in the local community over many years.
- In January 2013 fire crews from Clapham were among the first on the scene following the fatal helicopter crash in Vauxhall. They were praised for their work which helped to save lives and protect the public following the crash.
- We want Clapham fire station to remain open and fully able to deal quickly with major incidents.
Fire service proposals
In January 2013 the Mayor and LFEPA confirmed there were 12 fire stations at risk of closure in London, including Clapham.
The Mayor intends to make a final decision about the future of the 12 fire stations on 20 June 2013.
