Survey launched asking for views on Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service


A survey has been launched today asking residents in the county to help shape the future of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS).


Consultation has begun on the Fire and Rescue Service’s Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) 2022-2025, which takes place over an eight-week period ending on 26 November 2021.

The CRMP is an assessment of risks and how effectively resources are used to address those risks. All fire and rescue services have to produce a CRMP every three years as a minimum.

You can take part in the survey here:

The CRMP has been developed following detailed analysis and feedback gained from consultation that took place in February this year and the content of the draft plan was approved by the county council’s cabinet last month.

It 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 if they agree with the priorities identified by GFRS and to rate them in terms of importance.

Chief Fire Officer Mark Preece said: “We really want to hear from the public to get your thoughts on how we can improve and shape our activities over the next three years. Planning for the future of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service is extremely important to us and feedback from residents will ensure we continue to improve.”

Cllr Dave Norman, cabinet member with responsibility for the Fire and Rescue Service, said: “I would encourage everyone to take part in this survey and help play a part in shaping the future of the Service for the next three years. Your views are invaluable and will really help Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service to continue making progress in its improvement journey.”
