Our future

 

Your opinion matters to us

We are accountable to you for the services we provide, so we aim to involve as many people as possible when we are developing our Safety Plan. These conversations with our communities, our people, partners, representative bodies and other stakeholders will help us to improve our understanding about your expectations and the services you require from us.

We will use the feedback from these conversations to help influence and develop our plans as we look to deal with future challenges and ensure that we deliver the best outcomes for our people and the communities of Staffordshire.

As our plans develop over the next four years we want you to help us to shape, improve and transform our prevention, protection and response activities to make Staffordshire safer, meet the challenges of reduced public sector funding and reflect the changing demands and risks placed on the service. When we have specific proposals to discuss, we propose that we will consult with you in more detail. We will do so in a way that helps us understand the effects of such proposals whilst making best use of our resources.

We will be exploring ways in which we can continue to improve how we do things and look to transform the service to make best use of our people, places and resources. We will consider:

  • The way we crew our fire engines
  • Our on-call firefighter duty system to see how we can maximise our availability for responding to emergency calls
  • Reviewing the way we use, and crew, our specialist vehicles and equipment so that we respond in the most effective and efficient way
  • Working collaboratively with partners to improve the safety, health and wellbeing of our people and communities
  • The range and scope of the fire safety work we do to help keep people safe in their homes and the buildings they work in and visit
  • The way we share our estate with Staffordshire Police where it will benefit the service and our communities.

We would welcome your opinion about our future proposals and the way, in which we combine our prevention, protection and response activities to make Staffordshire safer, meet the challenges of reduced public sector funding and reflect the changing demands and risks placed on our people and resources.

When we have specific proposals to discuss, we will consult in a way that is proportionate and targeted so we best understand the effects of a proposal on those groups affected. The way we consult on proposals will depend on the issues being considered, who needs to be consulted and available time and resources.

If you would like to take part in future consultation, or you are interested in providing us your feedback, thoughts or suggestions please email us at consultation@staffordshirefire.gov.uk
