Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service will be using a national report published today (Wednesday 15 December) to consider how it could learn from it to improve its services to the communities of Nottinghamshire.
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services' 'State of Fire and Rescue – The Annual Assessment of Fire and Rescue Services in England 2021' is the third annual assessment of England's fire and rescue services by Sir Thomas Winsor, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Fire and Rescue Services.
The report is available on the HMICFRS website.
Also published today are the results of the latest HMICFRS inspections of 12 other Fire and Rescue Services. NFRS was inspected between September and November this year and these results will be published in spring next year. The reports are published on the 'Fire and Rescue' page of the HMICFRS website.
In addition, NFRS is currently consulting on its three-year Community Risk Management Plan. The draft plan and consultation are available on the 'Vision and Values' page of our website. The consultation closes on Christmas Eve.
Chief Fire Officer John Buckley said: "We welcome the work undertaken by HMICFRS in providing assurance to the public regarding their local Fire and Rescue Service and promoting improvement for the sector. We will be studying the State of Fire Report and the inspection reports from other Fire and Rescue Services to identify areas of best practice. We will look to learn from these reports and use them to improve our own work to make our communities safer. The State of Fire Report will also inform us of potential changes and reforms to the fire sector as a whole.
"We are currently finalising our strategic plan for the next three years - the CRMP - and I would like to encourage anyone who has not already done so to take part in the consultation on this."
