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: “This election is the most important for a generation. It is make or break time for public services.
“Firefighters 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.
“With 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.”
Registering to vote is simple, takes only a few minutes and requires only your national insurance number.
Voters have until 23 April to register. You can register here.
