There are no planned closures of fire stations at this time. If any such proposals are needed in order to meet the requirements of the budget settlement, then these will be put to the Fire Authority in January. The London Fire Commissioner is on record as saying that he is committed to maintaining the current attendance targets for the time it takes fire engines to get to incidents, targets which are believed to be amongst some of the best in the country.
