Each year, in conjunction with staff and the Fire Authority we agree a number of priorities. These are things we will complete or work towards during that year that we believe are more important than other work we want or need to do.
Equality and Inclusion Annual Report
Every year we report on how our work meets the equality needs of our community and workforce and in doing so complies with the public equality duty.
Equality and Inclusion Strategy
Our latest equality and inclusion strategy includes an overview of our community and workforce and the issues identified, through monitoring, we need to address to carry out our public equality duty.
Fire and Rescue Service Equality Framework Peer Report
This is a report written by a team of peers who visited our Service and assessed us against the Fire and Rescue Service Equality Framework. We are very proud to have been assessed as 'Excellent', the top rating.
Freedom of Information Publication Scheme
Our publication scheme sets out where information can be found or how to request information.
Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP)
The IRMP is a four year assessment of the risk in our community and how we plan to mitigate the risk.

Operational Assessment (Op/A) Peer Review report
The Op/A is our Service's self assessment about how we deliver our frontline services. The assessment is challenged by a team of peers from other fire and rescue services to ensure that it is an accurate representation of our improvements, that we are aware of the areas we need to improve and that we have plans in place to make these improvements.
The last peer review took place in September 2014.
