Fire staff

Gloucestershire County Council, as the Fire Authority, has a statutory responsibility, under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004, to produce a Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP). The plan must cover at least a three year period, be reviewed regularly and outline how Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service will tackle and mitigate the risks our communities face.

Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service is part of the County Council and incorporates other Community Safety related services such as Civil Protection, Trading Standards, Coroners and Road Safety.


Our purpose is to make Gloucestershire a safer and healthier place to live by serving and protecting our residents and businesses. We achieve this through prevention, protection and response activities and by having dedicated staff with the right skills.

Our Response capability is made up of 21 Community Fire Stations with 32 staffed frontline fire appliances, plus additional specialist vehicles, strategically located across Gloucestershire. Each fire appliance is mobilised according to the response needed.

As well as extinguishing fires and performing rescues from road traffic collisions, we also attend rescues involving water, from height, animals and hazardous materials. In addition to this, we attend life threatening medical emergencies by co-responding with the Ambulance Service.

The draft CRMP has been developed following feedback from our four-week pre-draft consultation in February this year and the analysis that we have conducted through our Community Risk Profile. The draft plan outlines eight key objectives for GFRS which will be delivered during the three-year life of the plan, to include prevention, protection, response activities and use of data and technology. The plan also sets out to improve the Service’s inclusive culture, to ensure it attracts and develops a diverse workforce and emphasises the importance of collaborating with partners.




The proposals


Prevention

Deliver intelligence informed person-centred and impactful prevention activities that effectively and efficiently improve the safety, health and wellbeing of the diverse people who live, work in or visit Gloucestershire.

Protection

Deliver intelligence informed and impactful protection activities, to include inspections, audits, education and enforcement, which continue to reduce the likelihood and impact of fire in commercial buildings across Gloucestershire and reduce the risk to both the public and firefighters.

Response Standards

Implement National Operational Guidance and approved National Fire Standards to assure and support operational competence, learning and preparedness.

Response Arrangements

Review our existing arrangements to ensure that we have the required number of resources, with the right people and equipment, at the right time, in the right location.

People and Social Responsibility

Further improve our inclusive culture to ensure that we attract, retain, support and develop a diverse workforce, which is truly representative of our communities.

Collaboration

Collaboration is important in every organisation. We will collaborate by communicating with partners and building on ideas to innovate or do something differently in the public’s interest.

Digital, Data and Technology

Increase the use of data and business intelligence tools to ensure that we understand our risks and maximise the use of technology to respond appropriately to those risks.

Asset Management

Continue to provide the best facilities, vehicles, equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) we can afford, enabling us to deliver a professional service to our communities.
