Cant help but agree. The idea of making cuts in any emergency service seems mad to me. This is surely the result. Also, I understand that both extending ladder/turntables were out of use, undergoing repairs. Two to cover the whole of Cornwall cannot be enough. In this area with all the problems of holiday traffic there should be more equipment and resources than they obviously already have, spread over a wider area. Though I suppose those holding the purse strings will say they just cannot afford it - what price a life ?
