Our Vision - Working Together For Safer Communities

The fire and rescue service has a proven track record in delivering prevention activities in people’s homes, fitting smoke detectors and educating people to the dangers of fire. We need to use those important interactions to address the whole needs of that person, whether it is vulnerability due to health reasons, risk of crime or they just need to speak to someone who can then be the conduit to other agencies to get the help they need.

We can be that service; we can be more that just fire and rescue, and we can be the safety service for our communities. We can only do this by working with, and on behalf of, other agencies to reduce the burden on the individual and enable other agencies to target resources more effectively.

Our new vision reflects that aspiration – put simply, we will be: “WORKING TOGETHER FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES”


Our Corporate Values support how we will deliver our services to the communities we serve. We hold the health and safety of our staff as a core element in being able to deliver an effective service to the community. We will train and equip all staff to enable them to deliver the high quality service that our communities expect.

Equality and diversity are equally important to us. We are committed to our duties under the Equalities Act in both how we employ our staff and our service delivery. We have also looked at ourselves and the values that we hold. We have highlighted seven values that will support and drive how we will achieve our Vision. These are;


These values spell out what we believe is a core function we strive to do for our communities namely; P.R.O.T.E.C.T.
