As part of the events, residents will be asked to give their views on how they feel about the proposal and to understand the rationale around why it is being made. They will also be able to talk to the crews about the impact new developments in the south of Rugby will have on the fire services ability to meet its response standards in the future and the benefits that building an additional fire station will bring.
