PROPOSED changes to the county's fire and rescue services will be debated by councillors next week.
The new safety plan will be discussed by members of the county council's fire and community committee on Tuesday.
The plan includes redeploying one whole-time fire engine from Great Yarmouth to Gorleston and replacing the retained crew to give quicker 24-hour cover both sides of the river.
Council cabinet members have to approve the plan which goes out to public consultation during the summer before a final decision in October.
