Rapid response rescue units in towns planned
Thirteen new rapid response rescue units, including in Sandbach and Holmes Chapel — could soon be introduced across Cheshire in an effort to cut the number of deaths on the county’s roads.
Cheshire Fire Authority has proposed the move in a draft four-year plan which will go out to public consultation next week, (writes local democracy reporter Stephen Topping).
Other stations proposed as sites include Alsager. The news comes after 46 people died as a result of crashes across Cheshire in 2018 — more than double the number in 2017, and a trend that the authority said had continued so far in 2019.
