Corby and East Northants MP Andy Sawford has backed a campaign to keep two fire engines in Corby.
The county’s fire and rescue service plans to introduce a second high-tech Cobra Intervention Vehicle to improve the way it responds to Corby 999 calls.
The vehicle will be based at Corby fire station, replacing one of the existing full-time crews there.
Mr Sawford, who has said the move would effectively halve fire service cover in the town, has signed a Fire Brigades Union petition opposing the plans.
A consultation period on the fire service’s wider plans ends in mid-January.
Forthcoming drop-in sessions take place at Market Street in Wellingborough on December 5 and at the Corby Cube on December 10.
