City of Edinburgh Fire & Rescue Plan
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
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.
Using the link below, responses can be captured through
the online consultation hub at Citizen Space.
The closing date for the
consultation is 31st March
