Help shape the focus and activities of the Fire and Rescue Service on the Isles of Scilly

[UPDATE 21 FEBRUARY 2023: The consultation has now closed as the deadline for responding has passed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a response]

All fire and rescue authorities are required to produce a Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) covering a period of a minimum of 3 years and we want your views to make sure our plan meets the needs of the community.

A CRMP sets out the risks facing a community and how the fire and rescue authority intends to meet those risks and reduce them. The Isles of Scilly Fire and Rescue Service is in the process of writing a CRMP for the period 2023 – 2026. This will replace the Integrated Risk Management Plan (2019 – 2023).

It is essential that our CRMP is developed in consultation with the public to ensure that we are able to prioritise our resources and reduce risk and vulnerability within our community.

You can read a summary of the Council’s current fire and rescue resource, which may help you respond to the consultation, in our Isles of Scilly Fire and Rescue Service Background Information Document.

Councillor Robert Francis, Chairman of the Fire and Rescue Authority said: "I encourage residents to read the background information document and complete the survey. Your responses will support our Fire and Rescue service in their development of a Community Risk Management Plan which accurately describes the risks facing our community and gives the team the best chance of keeping us safe over the next 3 years."
