Another ill-informed and quite frankly stupid comment.
Even if the total number of fires was reduced, the fires that still occurred wouldb e reported.
If you bothered to check the facts you would be able to see that Hampshire is at the forefront of reducing the total number of incidents they attend by educating the general public on fire safety. You would also see that since 2003 their own statistics show reductions in every area except chimney fires. So even though some might think that money spent on diversity, equality and so on is not well spent they are succeeding in the areas that are important to the majority of Hampshire residents.
Now al we have to do is persuade the DE to use the correct photos for each fire (this story), and also persuade them not to use photos of fire trucks that have nothing to do with Hampshire. (MS Crash story).

Seems you don't understand what "reduced" means. Are you going to post this same stupid comment every time there's a fire?

No no no, you don't understand at all. If someone says something has been reduced, then clearly any incident of it happening again is proof that there's been a massive cover-up.

hucket P, you seem to be a bit highly strung, you need to chill. It was meant to be a sarcastic comment due to the general government spin pointing towards a reduction of property fires, there are still plenty of fires, of all shapes & forms. Whether they are reported is down to the emergency services being informed, collating the details & then how that said information is entered into the relevant government online data collecting system.
Yes Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service has done a sterling job in their proactive approach to reducing fire deaths, all of the information is readily available on their website for those who are interested although the general trend is that fires/ fire related deaths are increasing nationally.

Most importantly for Mr huckit P though is that the Echo makes sure that it has the right pictures of the relevant counties fire appliances & that they are on the right story, otherwise he might burst a blood vessel!

If the question you are posing is - 'are there going to be a reduction in my comments about fires', I'm not sure I understand what that means?
