Press release!

Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS) is putting together its next three year plan and would like to hear the views of county councillors.


The plan, called the Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP), sets out how the service will help keep the people of Gloucestershire safe and provide value for money.


Although GFRS is already one of the highest performing and lowest cost services in the country, it needs to make sure that it remains fit for purpose against a backdrop of a continually evolving risk picture, new legislation and national drivers, including Government calls to ‘reform’.


The IRMP highlights past performance and sets out the service’s vision to make sure the right resources are in place to best protect Gloucestershire’s communities.


We would like to hear members' views regarding the draft IRMP and the objectives proposed to guide future service delivery.


To get involved and be part of the future of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service, please view the draft IRMP and complete the online survey which can be found, once the consultation is open, at


Paper questionnaires and copies of the draft IRMP are also available from Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service or can be readily accessed at county libraries from next week.


The consultation runs from Monday 16 October 2017 until Monday 8 January 2018.
