Core Code of Ethics for Fire and Rescue Services

The national Core Code of Ethics for Fire and Rescue Services are our ethical principles.

The Core Code sets out five ethical principles, based on the Seven Principles of Public Life, which alongside the accompanying guidance provides a basis for promoting good behaviour and challenging inappropriate behaviour.

  • Putting our communities first – we put the interest of the public, the community and service users first.
  • Integrity – we act with integrity including being open, honest and consistent in everything we do.
  • Dignity and respect – making decisions objectively based on evidence, without discrimination or bias.
  • Leadership – we are all positive role models, always demonstrating flexibility and resilient leadership. We are all accountable for everything we do and challenge all behaviour that falls short of the highest standards.
  • Equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) – We continually recognise and promote the value of EDI both within the FRSs and the wider communities in which we serve. We stand against all forms of discrimination, create equal opportunities, promote equality, foster good relations, and celebrate difference
