About the CRMP
The Fire Authority has a statutory responsibility, under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004, to produce a CRMP. The plan must cover at least a three year period, be reviewed regularly and outline how GFRS will tackle and mitigate the risks our communities face.
The CRMP is informed by our Community Risk Profile (CRP), a document which assesses in detail the risks in our local areas, how likely they are to occur, how extensive the impact might be and also takes into account national risks.
As a service that has serving our community at its heart, we have a clear mission statement to support our mission and set of strategic aims specifically designed to support our overall objectives.
Working together for a safer Gloucestershire
Working together we will provide the highest standard of community safety and emergency response services to the communities of Gloucestershire.
Ensure our services are delivered by a professional, well equipped, highly skilled, motivated and well developed workforce which is able to work safely and whose composition reﬂects our diverse community.
Prevention and protection
Work with our local communities to reduce risks to life, property and the environment from ﬁre and other emergencies.
Response and resilience
Respond promptly and efﬁciently to deal with ﬁres and other emergencies when they occur.
Monitor our performance to ensure that we continually improve and deliver value for money.
Our commitment to you is that we will always aim to be the best FRS we can be. In order to achieve this, there are certain behaviours that we expect from our staff.
How well our staff are demonstrating these as part of their day to day job is assessed within our bespoke appraisal system. We aim to live these values every day:
Code of Ethics
The National Fire Chiefs Council, with the Local Government Association, have produced a Code of Ethics for Fire and Rescue Services, to be adopted by every service in England.
The Code of Ethics reflects best practice principles and has been designed to underpin the way we serve our communities, carry out our role and work together.
