Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service Pleased and Proud to be Rated as “good” across the Board

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service has been rated as “good” in all 3 inspection areas; for effectiveness, efficiency and the way it treats its staff.  This assessment has come from a recent inspection by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) who said the Service had “managed to maintain strong operational performance while achieving savings; reducing its spend by £3 million since 2012” and they “look forward to seeing the Service build on this already impressive performance.”

Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Authority Budget Consultation 2019/20

How do we pay for your service?

We receive around 27% of our budget from government grant and business rates, with the balance coming from council tax. Government grants have been decreasing since 2011/12, and we have reduced our budget to deal with this fall in income. Increases have been made to our council tax so that we can continue to offer a quality service to the public of Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
