How many Green Goddesses are there?
Find out how many army Green Goddesses are available in your area, as well as the figures for fire service engines when no strike is on.

Most retained firefighters are not taking part in the strike, and the red fire engines at stations manned by them will still form part of each area's fire cover during any walk-out.

More than 177 red appliances will be used alongside the Green Goddesses during the strike on 21-22 January.

The figures below reflect total numbers of personnel, not how many may be on shift at any given point.
