Final week to have your say on Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service’s three year plan

Cornwall’s residents are being reminded that this is the last week they can take part in a consultation to give their views on the focus for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) for the next three years.

While most people will associate firefighters with the vital role of responding to emergencies, today’s fire and rescue service has a broad remit and responsibility for ensuring communities stay safe.

To make sure the service’s plans reflect the needs of the community it serves, CFRS is asking people to give their views on its Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP).

The consultation has been running since September and ends on Friday 30 November.

Have your say on the Integrated Risk Management Plan

“The Integrated Risk Management Plan aims to ensure that our focus and activities over the next three years reflects the need of the community we serve,” said Paul Walker, Chief Fire Officer for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service. “The plan will take into account your views on how the service should develop and where we should focus our resources.

"All fire and rescue authorities in the UK are required to put together and consult on an Integrated Risk Management Plan," explained Councillor Sue James, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for environment and public protection. "This ensures the right resources are in the right place at the right time to bring about improved community safety, with services responding to the needs of their communities more effectively and more efficiently."
