"We will be studying the State of Fire Report and the inspection reports from other Fire and Rescue Services to identify areas of best practice.

"We will look to learn from these reports and use them to improve our own work to make our communities safer. The State of Fire Report will also inform us of potential changes and reforms to the fire sector as a whole.

“We are currently finalising our strategic plan for the next three years, the Community Risk Management Plan, and I would like to encourage anyone who has not already done so to take part in the consultation on this.”
