Community Risk Management Plan
Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) has a statutory duty under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004, via the Fire and Rescue Service’s National Framework, to prepare a Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP).
The CRMP has four components:
- The WFRS Prevention, Protection and Response Strategy (PDF, 3.2MB), which sets out our vision and priorities and how we will make Warwickshire safer over the next five years
- The Risk Analysis, which assesses fire and rescue related risk in the community
- Performance Measures, which measure the impact of the strategy on reducing risk in the community
- The Statement of Assurance 2021/22 (PDF, 2MB), which provides financial, governance and operational assurance to the community and government. This is completed and published on an annual basis.
The CRMP will be kept under review to ensure it addresses and mitigates emerging national and local community risks.
HMICFRS - Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service Inspection Reports
The outcome of the latest full HMICFRS inspection was published in January 2022 and we were judged as “needing improvement” overall. The full report is available on the HMICFRS website, along with more recent reports from inspection visits to monitor our progress.
HMICFRS also carried out a Covid-19 specific inspection at the end of 2020, when they concluded that they “were impressed with how WFRS maintained its statutory functions and made good use of its staff to carry out additional duties to support the community during the pandemic”.
