The FBU has published a domestic abuse policy document in order to help officials negotiate a local policy to raise awareness within their fire and rescue service.
Samantha Rye, secretary of the FBU national womenâ€™s committee, said: â€œDomestic violence is abhorrent and repugnant. Perpetrators should feel the full weight of the law against them.
â€œThe FBU is committed to the health, safety and welfare of all members and seek to support any member, women or men, who may experience problems relating to domestic violence.
â€œThe National Womenâ€™s Committee wanted to develop this model policy to assist brigade officials to negotiate a local policy which will help to improve the lives for members and raise awareness of the issues associated with domestic abuse and sexual violence.â€
