Public drop in events announced to help inform Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service’s new Integrated Risk Management Plan

[C]umbria Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) have announced a number of public consultation events across the county to understand public views and ideas before developing a new Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP).

Members of the public are encouraged to drop-in to find out about current services and to provide feedback and ideas on the service’s vision for the future.

Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service develop an ‘Integrated Risk Management Plan’ every four years to ensure resources are used to best meet the needs of residents and visitors.

The IRMP focuses on three key areas of service provision:

Response – How we respond to incidents using our people and our equipment

Protection – Working with the business community across Cumbria to deliver risk based protection activity

Prevention – Prevention focuses on people within their homes and communities. We improve safety, health and well-being and reduce the impact that fire and other incidents have on people living in their homes

Cumbria’s Chief Fire Officer, Steve Healey, said: “The service is constantly reviewing the level of risk in the county and how we can make the most effective use of the resources we have. The approach has a proven tracked record; with the number of incidents we attend dropping significantly over the last decade.  We’re always extremely keen to understand the views, feedback and ideas of the local communities that we serve, to ensure we have as much information and insight as possible to create our new IRMP.”
