We want to make sure we put our resources in the right place, at the right time to deal with emergencies and help prevent them in the first place through engagement and regulation.
This plan sets out how we will do this.
At the heart of these plans is a robust and detailed Operational Response Review.
Through this process, we have assessed our community risks, using a range of sophisticated analytical tools to identify where incidents such as fires or flooding might happen, when they might occur and how serious they could be.
This allows us to target our resources, including firefighters and fire engines,most effectively, bringing about a better balance of prevention, protection and response.
