Lincolnshire firefighters urge people not to risk their own lives to save animals
FIREFIGHTERS are urging members of the public not to put their own lives on the line rescuing animals.
The county's fire and rescue service now has six stations with a total of 65 specially-trained personnel, who can save animals without risking life and limb.
Critics argue that helping animals is a time-wasting exercise for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, which should focus on saving human life. But firefighters know that if they did not attempt to save them, members of the public would – risking injury and even death.
In 2011, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue responded to 62 incidents involving animals ranging from cats and dogs to horses and deer. And in a rural county like Lincolnshire, where animals can be livelihoods as well as much-loved pets, the service's efforts are crucial.
