Nia Griffith MP recently met with Chief Fire Officer Richard Smith and Deputy Chief Fire Officer Paul Bates to demand that Llanelli retains All its fire services currently in operation.

Nia said, “The very idea of Llanelli which has the largest population in Carmarthenshire suffering cuts to the fire service is frightening and mustn’t happen. Retaining our current service could literally mean the difference between life and death. The people of Llanelli demand and deserve an efficient and fast responding Fire Service.”
Nia further said, “The Llanelli Star has led the way with a petition against any cuts which I wholeheartedly support.
