The Authority publishes open reports and supporting documents 5 working days prior to the meetings.

Facts and analysis of facts used for decision making

In 2020/21 we are developing a draft Integrated Risk Management Plan which will replace the current plan.

Our vision is to utilise a Community Fire Risk Model to inform our prevention work, and help us identify the areas in our communities who are most at risk from fire to enable us to focus our emergency response locations and community fire safety activity where it will have the most impact.

Public Consultations

Consulting the public, business community and other stakeholders including the community and voluntary sector, is a key part of the Authority’s approach to policy development, performance planning and service delivery.

Consultation and engagement work is overseen by the Authority, through the Stakeholder Planning Board. In addition to more traditional ways of consultation, we have developed greater use of cost-effective online communication methods promoting these via our website and social media platforms with the aim of keeping people informed and engaged with our work.

Fire Authority meetings are webcast live and the public can submit comments during the meetings.

We welcome feedback with a Service contact us and Authority contact us facilities.

How we process your personal information and privacy is provided on the Service website.
