Help shape the future of Fire Service


HFRS Consultation snipHUMBERSIDE FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE has recently prepared: 

  • a draft vision which explains where the organisation wants to be by 2020;
  • and a new Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) for 2012-15, which sets out the risks within the Humberside area and how those risks will be managed.

Members of the public are now being asked to give their views on both the vision and the IRMP to help shape the future for the organisation.

Chief Fire Officer and Chief Executive, Richard Hannigan, said: “The proposed long-term vision for the organisation has been formed in the belief that there is always room for improvement and things can be done better rather than keeping everything the way it has always been. It explains what we hope to be doing to improve our current service, as well as what we would like to do differently.”

Every Fire and Rescue Service in the country has to have an Integrated Risk Management Plan. It shows how the Fire Authority identifies and efficiently manages the risks within the Service area.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Chris Blacksell, said: “The plan not only reflects the risks that are facing our communities, but also what we, as a fire and rescue service, do to help manage and reduce those risks.”

The formal three-month consultation on the draft vision and the IRMP began on Wednesday 1st August and closes on Wednesday 31st October 2012. Both documents and associated consultation questionnaires are available to download above for ease of readers, but are found on the consultation area in the News section of the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service website.
