The added workload of the Giro d’Italia will not affect the normal fire service in Londonderry and the rest of Northern Ireland.

Dale Ashford, Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said: “It is business as usual during the Giro d’Italia. As ever our number one priority is to protect our community and through our well-rehearsed contingency arrangements, we will ensure that normal emergency cover is maintained across Northern Ireland.”
