Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Strategic Service Review Programme

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) has launched an online survey as they consider future changes to our emergency service.

There are issues that the service must address with the ageing estate while ensuring that they are best placed to meet the changing community risk across Scotland.

The survey, titled Shaping Our Future Service: Your Say, is open until 30 June 2024 and marks the first stage in engagement with communities, staff, representative bodies, partners and elected members.

The Fire Service want to be a modern fire and rescue service that is ready for the challenges of Scotland’s future.

The Service want to do more for our communities, not just by responding to incidents but by stopping them from happening. To make sure they have the right resources in the right place at the right time they need to change.

The Service want to hear your views on what you want from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

Please share across your networks.
