Fire Brigades Union General Secretary, Matt Wrack said: “Firefighters across the UK will be devastated by the loss of two colleagues. Our thoughts are with their families. The FBU has already started our procedures for investigating fatal incidents. Firefighters work extremely closely together and share challenges and dangers. Losing a colleague is something that touches everyone and that firefighters never get over.”
Matt Wrack is travelling to Southampton this morning to meet local firefighters.
