Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service launches new four-year action plan

The Service’s Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) 2021-25, which assesses community risks in Shropshire, has been produced following an extensive twelve-week consultation period last year.

Consultation on the draft CRMP began on 6 July 2020 and ran until 30 September 2020.

The document, entitled Making Shropshire Safer, is required by Government and includes information about the Service’s objectives.

These include:

  • making response timings easier to understand
  • using technology to prevent fires in rural communities
  • Employing additional specialist staff to work with businesses, and
  • outlines how the Service will meet growing demand through the flexible use of resources, including its staff.

Finally, the Service’s vision has been refreshed to reflect its culture of innovation, inclusion, diversity and valuing its people.

Chief Fire Officer, Rod Hammerton said

“This is an important strategy for us because it sets out how our focus in the next four years isn’t about making cuts, it’s about investing in improvements. It also demonstrates throughout how culture and valuing our staff is at the very centre of everything we do”
