Humberside Fire and Rescue Service asks members of the public not to make unnecessary 999 calls, as it will have a reduced emergency response service during industrial action.
Strike dates include May 2 from noon to 5pm, May 3 from 2pm to 2am, and May 4 from 10am to 3pm.
Dene Sanders, Chief Fire Officer at Humberside Fire and Rescue, said: “Whilst the industrial action is taking place we will still respond to 999 calls. A level of service is in place but we are asking people to only call 999 if they really do need a fire engine.
“Our priority will be to respond to those calls where lives are at risk.”

A non-emergency call could be to someone who is locked outside their house or where debris has fallen in the road. There are other agencies and organisations that can help in these instances.
CFO Sanders said: “We do find ourselves in an unusual situation where we must prioritise our calls for those who are most in need of our assistance. However, I must emphasise that you should still call 999 in an emergency so that an experienced control room operator can deal with your situation.”
