Our plan

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:

  1. The WFRS Prevention, Protection and Response Strategy, which sets out our vision and priorities and how we will make Warwickshire safer over the next five years
  2. The Risk Analysis, which assesses fire and rescue related risk in the community
  3. Performance Measures, which measure the impact of the strategy on reducing risk in the community
  4. The Statement of Assurance, which provides financial, governance and operational assurance to the community and government. This is completed and published on an annual basis.

The CRMP, via its annual action plans, continues to evolve and adapt to address and mitigate emerging national and local community risks. 

Consultation on the WFRS Prevention, Protection and Response Strategy (2022-2027)

We are keen to ensure that everybody who needs us or works with us has an opportunity to share their views on our plans to keep everyone safe. We would therefore like your feedback on our draft Prevention, Protection and Response Strategy 2022-2027. From 4 July, you can do this via the formal consultation, which will close on 25 September 2022.

HMICFRS - Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service Inspection Reports

The outcome of the latest 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 the report from the previous inspection in 2018.

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”.
