Help to shape your local fire service

Have your say

Tayside Fire and Rescue are looking for the views of the community to help shape the priorities and objectives of the local fire and rescue service.

The new Scottish Fire and Rescue Service will come into force on April 1 and aims to improve connections with the local authority and the communities it serves.

A consultation has been launched on the proposed priorities and objectives for local fire and rescue delivery across the local authority areas of Angus, Dundee City and Perth and Kinross.

The proposed priorities and objectives have been influenced using feedback from Stakeholder Focus Group Meetings, which were held at venues across the Angus, Dundee and Perth and Kinross area during January and will form the basis of a Local Fire and Rescue Plan for each local authority area.

These Plans will represent a critical part of the delivery process for the new Scottish Fire and Rescue Service by demonstrating a commitment to local fire and rescue service delivery, setting out local solutions to local issues and national priorities.

As part of our engagement and consultation strategy, the service is keen to get your views on their proposed priorities and objectives before they incorporate them into a Local Fire and Rescue Plan for each local authority area.

This approach will ensure that what they are proposing reflects local needs and involves the wider communities of Angus, Dundee City and Perth and Kinross in shaping their local fire and rescue priorities and objectives.

The priorities and objectives that are being proposed can be viewed and downloaded at www.taysidefire.gov.uk/page/Local_Plans_201314_216.html

Views on the proposals can be submitted by completing a short online questionnaire which can be found on the left hand side of the page.

The consultation period closed on March 8.

You can also provide your views by requesting a paper copy of the priorities and objectives by calling the Performance and Planning Section on (01382) 825295.
