Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Fire Service in Bristol Gets Extra Money to Prepare for Nuclear Disaster

Extra funding will be given to train Bristol firefighters in how to deal with the aftermath of nuclear, chemical and biological disaster

Avon Fire Authority will get £958,310 from a £21-million package to ensure the firefighters know the most up- to-date techniques for dealing with mass contamination.

The money will also be used for training search dogs, protective clothing for firefighters working in difficult conditions and replacing oxygen and supplies needed to simulate real-life situations in training. It is part of the Government's investment in vital equipment to ensure that England's Fire and Rescue Services are equipped to deal with major incidents, including terrorism and extreme weather conditions. The Government wants a linked network of nine regional fire control centres across England to replace the current 46 stand-alone control rooms. Bristol's fire control centre will close and all calls will go through a new super-centre in Taunton, covering the entire South West.
