Help shape the future of your local fire and rescue service

Residents and business owners are being encouraged to give their views to help shape Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s plan for the next five years.

The Service is looking ahead and starting to draft its plan, known as the Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP), which covers its key focus areas until 2029. The plan will identify the fire and rescue related risks in the county and how the Service will mitigate them, as well as the opportunities that exist to continue improving its services to local communities.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Jon Anderson said: "Our CRMP sets out what we think are the priority areas for us to concentrate on to manage the key risks we have identified and improve the service we deliver. A key part of this planning is to involve our communities at the very start of the process, which is why we are seeking the public’s views now.

"We have put together a set of questions that will provide valuable information to us about what residents and business owners in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough expect of their local fire service, their views on how we deliver our service and their support in helping us target our resources in the most effective way."

The CRMP is linked to the Service’s vision for no preventable deaths or injuries from fires and other emergencies, and its strategic aims to achieve operational and community safety excellence, putting people at the heart of what it does and providing excellent value for money.

Jon concluded: "We are really keen for everyone living and working across the county to tell us what they think by completing our survey. The survey takes around 10/15 minutes to complete and will allow us to shape what we deliver and how over the coming years. Please take the time to complete the questions, and you could be in with a chance to win one of three £50 shopping vouchers."

The survey is available in our Consultation section, and is open until the end of July.
