The Fire Brigades Union has taken a stand against unsafe duty systems in the UK fire and rescue service. Some fire services are asking firefighters to work up to 96 hours continuously.

In a significant legal victory, a High Court recently ruled that asking firefighters to work 96 hours continuously was unlawful. Read our press release here. The judgement is available to read here.
