Surrey Fire and Rescue Service's Public Safety Plan 2011 - 2020
Each Fire and Rescue Authority must produce a publicly available Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP). Surrey Fire and Rescue Authority's IRMP is known as the Public Safety Plan. The latest edition covers the period from 2011-20 and is accompanied by two year action plans. The Public Safety Plan covers at least a three-year time span, which:
- Is regularly reviewed and revised and reflects up to date risk information and evaluation of service delivery outcomes
- Has regard to the risk analyses completed by Local and Regional Resilience Forums including those reported in external Community Risk Registers (CRRs) and internal risk registers, to ensure that civil and terrorist contingencies are captured in their IRMP
- Reflects effective consultation during its development and at all review stages with representatives of all sections of the community and stakeholders
- Demonstrates how prevention, protection and response activities will be best used to mitigate the impact of risk on communities in a cost effective way
- Provides details of how Fire and Rescue Authorities deliver their objectives and meet the needs of communities through working with partners and
- Has undergone an effective equality impact assessment process.
Fire and Rescue Authorities should review the effectiveness of cross-border integration arrangements with neighbouring authorities and set these out appropriately in their IRMPs.
Surrey Fire and Rescue Authority's Public Safety Plan (PSP) is its long term, risk based business strategy which outlines our future aims and priorities.
Surrey County Council's Cabinet approved the latest version of the PSP in June 2011, which explains how we will deliver fire and rescue services in Surrey from now until 2020. It focuses on:
- Preventing emergencies occurring in the first place – we need your help here – see: Get involved and sponsor Surrey Fire and Rescue.
- Ensuring an effective and well-balanced emergency response is provided – see our response standard to find out more.
- Ensuring that our resources are matched to the demands upon us.
We have twelve specific outcomes described in the PSP and until 2020 to deliver them. In the meantime, we have a two-year action plan which sets out where we want to be by 2016.
The full plan (in two parts), a summary version and the 2011-2013 action plan are available below. Further supporting documents are also available, including a consultation report which shows how public opinion has shaped the future of Surrey Fire and Rescue Service as it heads to the next decade.
The ORH Report below outlines the methodology and modelled impact of the changes to emergency response cover set out in the Public Safety Plan. The Appendices exceed the download limit for this site but are available on request.
If you require further information or to request a printed or electronic copy of the documents, please contact us.
Our Action Plan for 2013 - 2016 - your views welcomed.
Our Public Safety Plan 2011-20 is supported by action plans that explain the specific activity we will undertake to deliver the outcomes described.
Our second action plan covering the period from April 2013 until March 2016 is now available below. There are items from our first two year action plan that are not yet complete and these are identified in the plan.
This second action plan supports our mission to provide a professional and well supported Fire and Rescue Service which reduces community risk in order to save lives, relieve suffering, protect property and the environment.
