Fire crew called to Wilpshire

A FIRE crew was called to a detached house in Wilpshire after strong winds threatened to blow away a fascia board.

Firefighters with a specialist aerial ladder platform from Hyndburn fire station attended the incident in Ribchester Road at around 1.30pm on Saturday.

A spokesman for Hyndburn station said the loose board could have been ‘highly dangerous’ if it had become fully detached.

Why do people waste the emergency services time , if the timber was maintained and good it wouldn't blow off ,, people concentrate on making the inside nice but neglect the outside ,,, I'd charge if I was the fire brigade ,, if you called a builder out it wouldn't be free ....

Just what I was about to say, using emergency resources for property maintenance is not on. I wouldn't be surprised if they do start to claim on homeowner insurance and submitting a bill. If you own it you should pay.. and yes I am a property owner.

All repairs whether emergency or not carry a degree of expense, why should the taxpayer pay when resources are already stretched to breaking point.

Maybe a cowboy builder didn't fix the fascia board on properly !!!!!! Best phone up Dominic Littlewood to come and sort it for free !!!!!!!! Then again wouldn't the loose fascia board pose a lesser risk than the millions of sturdy look trees that could fall down anytime ?

At least people who live in Wilpshire are likely to be taxpayers, past or present. Unlike, say, the pondlife in Mill Hill, Whalley Range, or many other localities.
