Public survey: access to fire and rescue service information

The Home Office is seeking views from the public regarding accessing information on fire and rescue services. 

The Home Office is the government department responsible for fire and rescue services in England. The Home Secretary recently announced a package of reforms to the services including seeking greater transparency by making information on the service more easily accessible to the public online.

The Home Office would like to hear your views on how you currently access information on fire and rescue services and what other types of fire related information you would find useful. 

The Home Office will use the results to shape what fire information is in future published online.

Any information you provide will be stored on secure government networks and will not be processed outside of those networks. It will be kept for a maximum of one year from the closing date of the survey. It will only be used for internal purposes and it will not be shared with anyone from outside government. 

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and closes at 5pm on Friday, July 8, 2016.
