Firefighters across the UK are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote in the upcoming 2015 general election taking place 7 May.
Dave Green, FBU national officer, said: â€œThis election is the most important for a generation. It is make or break time for public services.
â€œFirefighters need to have their voices heard. Having lost over 5000 firefighters since 2010 it is clear the UK fire and rescue service cannot take another five years of austerity.
â€œWith a membership of 40,000 many firefighters will have an influential role in deciding who their MP’s are and who they want representing them.â€
Registering to vote is simple, takes only a few minutes and requires only your national insurance number.
Voters have until 23 April to register.Â You can register here.
