Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) is consulting on a proposed change to its service delivery model as part of its Resourcing to Risk approach. Resourcing to Risk aims to have the right resource, in the right place and at the right time, to keep people safe in their homes, their workplace, their environment and when they are travelling through Warwickshire.
The Service wants to hear views and feedback on this proposal, which aims to optimise the distribution of fire appliances, firefighters and supporting resources so that they better align to risk and demand. The model proposed by WFRS does NOT plan to close fire stations in Warwickshire.
This consultation summarises the reasons for the Resourcing to Risk proposal and the benefits we think the proposed approach offers in improving how we keep Warwickshire’s communities and people safe. We want to ensure we have considered a range of views on the Resourcing to Risk proposal and understand how you feel it may impact you. What you tell us during this consultation will inform our future delivery approach and consider any unanticipated effects of the proposal.
This consultation is open to anyone who wishes to comment, including people who live and work in Warwickshire, our staff, people who use the service, professionals, our partners, providers, and other stakeholders.
We are holding a series of information sessions in each of Warwickshire’s five district and boroughs. Each will start at 6.30pm and finish at 8.00pm. Places are limited according to each venue (these vary from 150 – 400), so if you’d like to join us, you MUST book a ticket using the link below.
