Fire service wants public to have their say on 999 response times

South Yorkshire’s fire service wants people to have their say on its work – including how quickly it should respond to different types of emergency.

We’ve today launched a consultation on how it delivers its service, with the results used to help plan its services over the next few years.

Amongst the questions it wants people’s views on are the expected response times it should set for different incidents.

The consultation will also ask people for their views on the quality of service and value for money SYFR provides taxpayers, and what people think its priorities should be over the next few years.

The results of the consultation will help to inform the service’s next Integrated Risk Management Plan. This is a plan which considers the different risks in South Yorkshire and how the fire service intends to address them with the resources it has available.

A draft plan will be submitted to the service’s governing Fire Authority in September, before further consultation with the public.

The plan is not expected to propose any cuts to firefighters, fire engines or fire stations.
