Sinn Féin MLA Sue Ramsey said that she has asked the Health Department for urgent update on the recent revelations about a senior member of the Fire Service.
The West Belfast MLA, who is also Chair of the Assembly’s Health Committee said:
“There is clearly serious problems within the Fire Service, which is subject to two on-going reviews. These reviews need to be completed urgently so that problems that exist can be dealt with.
“These further revelations, while they are issues of management and do not involve the excellent service provided by the fire fighters, will obviously affect morale.
“As Chair of the Health Committee I have asked the Health Department for an update on these issues as soon a possible.
“The Fire Service provide such a valuable service that the public need reassured that these issues can be dealt with quickly.”
