Fire Service invites feedback over service provision


Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) will launch a consultation on its Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) on Monday, July 6. 

This plan sets out changes the Service will make over the next four years under its key responsibilities including responding to emergencies, protection work with businesses and prevention activities to make communities safer.

SFRS already provides the highest level of operational availability on mainland England but it is now seeking views of the public and partners to be sure the plan meets all needs and expectations.
