Fuel supply – response from West Yorkshire frontline services

A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Prepared – the region’s Local Resilience Forum – said:

We would like to reassure people that our frontline emergency responders, including the police, fire and ambulance services, are not experiencing any issues due to the current fuel supply issues. All services have their own provisions to ensure they are self-sufficient for fuel.

The LRF has liaised with all key partners and has confirmed there are no issues. Should any issues arise, our regional ‘Fuel Disruption Plan’ will be activated whereby mutual aid is offered where required to ensure business continuity. We will continue to communicate with all partners to monitor the situation.

In the meantime, we would ask members of the public to fuel their cars as normal and only purchase what you need.
