As with all other local authority departments we, as a
fire and rescue service are no different in the fact that we
have to report annually on a wide range of performance indicators.
These indicators help senior management to target areas of poor
performance, identify the reasons behind them and then commit
additional resources towards rectifying the problem areas.
Also they can help to pinpoint areas of good performance so that we
can identify what we are doing right.
These indicators are set by Central Government (Best Value
Performance Indicators) or are set locally (we set targets for
ourselves for the coming year and beyond in order to gauge our
We internally review and publish performance information on a
monthly basis and revise our priorities and objectives
accordingly. Performance is benchmarked against our peer and
fire and rescue authorities (those that are of a similar size
and nature) and also externally we publish performance indicators
via the Best Value Performance Plans. We also publish details
about our achievements and objectives in our Service Plan.
Engagement and Consultation
Effective engagement is a continual process and is an essential
part of our development process, central to shaping the future of
the service. This is achieved through involving our community,
staff, elected Members and partners throughout the development of
our plans. This two-way communication process provides us with the
opportunity to inform people about the services we provide and to
involve them in shaping our plans, allowing us to become a more
integrated service within the community.
We are also required by the National Framework document for fire
and rescue authorities to consult on our Integrated Risk Management Plan
(IRMP), which sets out our plans over a three-year period.
As part of this process we will be visiting our communities, staff,
elected Members and partners and asking for their views on our
plans and empowering them to make decisions on what we will be
doing to tackle our priorities over the next three years.
