Service Plan

The Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety (CFRCS) Service brings together a variety of functional teams that cover a diverse range of activities from fire fighting, emergency planning, road safety, domestic violence, antisocial behaviour, alcohol and drug use.

We are required to develop a three year plan that sets out what we are doing about a variety of issues that are relevant to our local communities.

Our current service plan runs from 2016 to 2019 and outlines how we will work together to deliver services that are cost effective, reduce risks and meet the needs of all of our communities.

Our service plan provides a comprehensive look at the workforce, budget, risks, challenges and opportunities for our service. It also presents our key priorities and objectives for the forthcoming year in order to achieve our mission of: “Working together to make Cornwall safer”.

In addition, an end of year report is created to assess each year’s progress, to understand where we are now and where we want to be in the future. The report both celebrates and challenges our performance to date and informs our future.

The government provide fire and rescue authorities with a statutory framework within which to operate.

View information on our Risk Based Evidence Profile, which helps us to understand areas of greatest risk as well as people, places and properties that are more likely to experience incidents. This document provides information to support decision making and helps to inform our service plan.

We are required to produce an annual statement of assurance as part of the Fire and Rescue National Framework for England, published on 11 July 2012.  The purpose of the statement is to provide independent assurance to communities and the Government that the service is being delivered efficiently and effectively. Whilst the Fire and Rescue National Framework sets out the Government’s priorities and objectives for fire and rescue authorities in England, it does not prescribe operational matters as these are determined locally by fire and rescue authorities.

The document gives clear guidance on what the Integrated Risk Management Plan must be for fire authorities, including

  • being easily accessible and publicly available
  • reflect effective consultation throughout its development and at all review stages with the community, its workforce and representative bodies, and partners
  • cover at least a three year time span and be reviewed and revised as often as it is necessary to ensure that fire and rescue authorities are able to deliver the requirements set out in this Framework
  • reflect up-to-date risk analysis and the evaluation of service delivery outcomes
  • fire and rescue authorities must work with communities to identify and protect them from risk and to present incidents from occurring.
