Publications and Reports
Welcome to our corporate publications and reports section
Every year we publish several key documents relating to our plans, policies and performance; here you can find out information about our governance, our future plans, how we conduct our business through to reports regarding inspection and assurance.
Listed below is a brief synopsis of each of our current core publications and the links opposite will take you to PDFs of the full documents.
Corporate Governance Framework
The Governance Framework articulates the organisations vision, strategic regulatory compliance, accountability, effective decision-making, transparency, clarity of purpose and ownership amongst stakeholders.
Governance Analysis and Action Plan
The Governance Analysis and Action Plan identifies where areas require improvement and development and monitors achievement ensuring continual improvement in the delivery of an efficient, effective, economic and ethical fire and rescue service.
Corporate Risk Register
The Corporate Risk Register highlights risks that face the organisation and clearly indicates measures put in place to mitigate those risks.
Integrated Risk Management Plan
The Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) is an assessment of local risks to life and how effectively resources are used in response to those risks, whilst at the same time providing value for money to the local taxpayer.
The IRMP is produced on a three yearly basis and thus at times there may be two plans available to view, the current ‘live’ plan and the proposed draft plan for the forthcoming three year period.
Annual Business Plan
The Annual Business Plan is a requirement of GFRS Corporate Governance Framework. The plan provides publicly accessible information about the Service and identifies objectives and targets for the year against which service delivery can be monitored. This ensures the Service continues to perform to a high standard and deliver both value for money and social value to service users.
Statement of Assurance
The annual Statement of Assurance covers governance, financial and operational matters. The statement demonstrates how the Fire and Rescue Authority meets its legal obligations and how as a Service, we are delivering against our stated objectives in the current Integrated Risk Management Plan.
HMICFRS Inspection Report
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) independently assess the effectiveness and efficiency of police forces and fire and rescue services – in the public interest. Their report provides authoritative information to allow the public to compare the performance of your fire and rescue service against others. The evidence provided is used to drive improvements in the services we provide to the public.
