City of Edinburgh Fire & Rescue Plan

Fire & Rescue ServiceThe Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is required under the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, as amended, to prepare Local Fire and Rescue Plans for each local authority in Scotland.  Following the publication of our Strategic Plan in our inaugural year, the first Local Plans were published in April 2014.       

These plans were developed to direct the Service through its initial transformation journey and have helped to forge our place as a national organisation with a strong sense of local accountability.  Against the drive of public sector reform, the local planning landscape continues to evolve to provide a greater focus on protecting the most vulnerable and improving community outcomes through collaborative working. 

The publication of our new Strategic Plan 2016-19 in October 2016 now instigates a timely requirement to carry out a mandatory review of all Local Fire and Rescue Plans.  This review will provide us with information on how well we are performing against our existing priorities as well as highlighting areas for continued improvement and opportunities for change against the growing needs of our communities.

In very simple terms the review is aiming to gain the views of stakeholders on our performance against the existing plan and if the priorities it contains are the right ones. This feedback will be used to inform the preparation of a new Fire Plan which will be put in place in October this year.
