Community Risk Management Plan 2021-2025

Shropshire Fire and Rescue's Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) Making Shropshire Safer details how the Service will keep communities - and those that visit - safe over the next four years. This includes the reduction of risk and committing to firefighter safety.

The CRMP also outlines how the Service will meet Government expectations of fire and rescue authorities, as detailed in the Fire and Rescue National Framework 2018. It follows a period of public consultation on the draft proposals.

Additionally, the document explores the main risks to communities and how available resources will be used to efficiently reduce those risks.

CRMP Strategic Risk Reviews

To understand what risk looks like in Shropshire, the Service has undertaken extensive research using expert analysis by partners including local authorities, evidence from national data, reviews of local incidents and issues arising from risk workshops involving staff from all departments and fire stations across the Service. The results are captured in the following risk reviews, which have been used as the basis for the CRMP:

Defining Risk

Diversification in Agriculture



Housing and Housing Market Analysis

National and Regional Risk

Organisational Risk


Population and Demographics


Stakeholder Plans

Technology Risk
