Have your say on Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service
Residents and businesses in the county are being urged to take part in a survey that will help shape the future of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS).
Consultation into the Fire and Rescue Service’s Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) 2022-2025 ends in just over a week’s time, on 26 November 2021.
It is an assessment of risks and how effectively resources are used to address those risks.
You can take part in the survey here: www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/glos-fire-crmp/
The CRMP outlines eight key objectives for GFRS which will be delivered during the three-year life of the plan, to include prevention, protection, response activities and use of data and technology.
It also sets out to improve the Service’s inclusive culture, to ensure it attracts and develops a diverse workforce and emphasises the importance of collaborating with partners.
The survey asks people to rate the priorities identified by GFRS in terms of importance – giving residents the chance to say what matters to them.
Chief Fire Officer Mark Preece said: “We really want to hear from you before consultation closes later this month. By taking part in the survey you can help us improve and shape our activities over the next three years. We would especially like to hear from businesses so we can plan effectively for the future of the Service.”
Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member with responsibility for the Fire and Rescue Service, said: “I would really like to encourage everyone to take part in this survey before it ends this month, as your views will play a key role in shaping the future of the Service for the next three years. Please let us know what matters to you so that we can continue making great strides forward.”
