Our Fire and Rescue Service is highly valued by our County Council and our public. WRFS has a very good reputation, with HMICFRS rating us good in our last two inspections. A further full inspection is currently underway (March 2021), and we have a strong story to tell about our efficiency, effectiveness and our amazing people.
We have big ambitions for the future, with a concerted focus on continuous improvement and change, to create the best possible sustainable services for the people who live, work, visit and travel through Warwickshire.
As a public facing emergency service our customers always come first. Public and firefighter safety are of paramount importance to us. We have a strong emphasis on prevention and protection, as we know this vital work makes our communities safer.
Our attention is also very much on ensuring our response services are agile, proportionate, and resilient, to respond to the wide variety of risks within Warwickshire. We must also be prepared to respond effectively to emerging risks, particularly those relating to climate change, pandemics, terrorism and other national emergencies.
We have seen through the Covid pandemic how versatile and vital our services can be in supporting the wider community effort, how well integrated we are within our County Council and how well connected we are with our partners and most importantly our communities.
Our people are undoubtedly our greatest asset and we require someone who is committed to developing an even more inclusive and diverse culture, where everyone is valued and can realise their fullest potential.
