The Risks are classified into five levels listed below:
The areas of risk are mapped out to include a set number of households and this often results in detailed risk catchments for inner City areas and larger risk catchments where houses are adjacent to open/rural spaces.
Each Station Area has its own particular mix of risks and problems and tools such as FSEC help to identify and quantify these Risks.
This results in specific aims and objectives per station which are incorporated into the Station Action Plan.
The Station Action Plan highlights performance over the last year and the borough targets to which this station contributes for this year.
