Our Vision - Working Together For Safer Communities

The previous vision of the Service “125 Alive” delivered a cultural change from 2004 to the present day to move from a service that primarily responded to emergencies to one that primarily aims to prevent emergencies. We also protect buildings and the people within them through the use of Fire safety legislation and gathering risk information and of course we will respond to emergencies whenever they occur with highly trained and well equipped staff.

The previous Vision was successful in reducing the number of fire and rescue related incidents over the previous 10 years and continues to do so. However, what the community needs from its fire and rescue service is changing and we need to ensure we are open and agile to meet these new challenges. The fire and rescue service has a proven track record in delivering prevention activities in people’s homes, fitting smoke detectors and educating people to the dangers of fire. We need to use those important interactions to address the whole needs of that person, whether it is vulnerability due to health reasons, risk of crime or they just need to speak to someone who can then be the conduit to other agencies to get the help they need. We can be that service; we can be more that just fire and rescue, and we can be the safety service for our communities.

We can only do this by working with, and on behalf of, other agencies to reduce the burden on the individual and enable other agencies to target resources more effectively.

Our new vision reflects that aspiration – put simply, we will be: “WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES”
