SFRS seeking community views on shaping future service

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) is holding a public pre-consultation exercise titled Shaping Our Future Service: Your Say.

This is the first stage in their engagement with communities, staff, representative bodies, partners, elected members as the SFRS consider changes to the emergency service they deliver across Scotland.

The SFRS wants to make sure they have the right resources in the right place at the right time to respond to incidents in Scottish communities, while some of their ageing buildings are also no longer fit for purpose and require urgent action to make them safer and more suitable.

They want to address those challenges and free up or redistribute SFRS resources to invest in other areas such as training, innovation and prevention.

An online information pack has been published which sets out some proposals for changes to the SFRS, and individuals and communities are being invited to submit their views.

The online survey will close on 30 June and can be found on the SFRS website.
