Consultation on proposed service delivery model

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) carries out fire and rescue functions on behalf of the Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Authority, Warwickshire County Council (WCC).WFRS is consulting on a proposed change to its service delivery model as part of its Resourcing to Risk approach. Resourcing to Risk aims to have the right resource, in the right place and at the right time, to keep people safe in their homes, their workplace, their environment and when they are travelling through Warwickshire.

The Service wants to hear views and feedback on this proposal, which aims to optimise the distribution of fire appliances, firefighters and supporting resources so that they better align to risk and demand.

The model proposed by WFRS does NOT plan to close fire stations in Warwickshire. This consultation summarises the reasons for the Resourcing to Risk proposal and the benefits we think the proposed approach offers in improving how we keep Warwickshire’s communities and people safe.
