The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson, has thanked BP for their fantastic generosity in continuing to provide free fuel for emergency vehicles. This scheme has saved West Midlands Police over £100,000 in fuel cost (up to Friday 15th May 2020).
BP introduced the free fuel scheme for all emergency vehicles only, following the outbreak of covid-19. The scheme was due to finish on 22nd May. However, this scheme has now been extended due to the ongoing response.
The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson, said:
“With savings of £100,000 already, this really has been a magnificent gesture by BP. Our services are under pressure like never before and any saving we can make ensures we are able to maintain and improve our services still further to the benefit of our officers and the public.
“I would personally like to thank BP on behalf of all our emergency services in the West Midlands and all those members of the public who have had to call on our services at this very difficult time.”
West Midlands Police Fleet Manager Gary Mallett, said:
“The very simple and effective scheme has been overwhelming welcomed by all our officers using emergency vehicles. We share the Police and Crime Commissioner’s personal thanks as I’m sure will the public, who are the main beneficiaries of this scheme through savings and continued service in difficult circumstances.”Back to News Archive
