Fire and Rescue Service Community Risk Management Plan 2013-2018 and Action Plan 2013

Welcome to the Consultation for the Fire and Rescue Service Community Risk Management Plan 2012-18 and the 2013 Action Plan.


What is a Community Risk Management Plan?

This plan is Oxfordshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service’s five year analysis of the county’s community risk profile, together with our strategic approach for how we intend to effectively manage those risks over the period. Government requires us, by law, to regularly produce and review the plan, which is also known as our Strategic Integrated Risk management Plan’.


This document looks at the fire and rescue related risks to the safety of the people who live, work, travel and visit Oxfordshire and identifies how we will work with communities, businesses and other partners (such as the police and ambulance services) to:

 ·       Prevent incidents happening in the first place – for example through information and education about how to reduce the risks of fires and road traffic collisions.

 ·       Protect people and property in case incidents do occur – for example through advice to and inspection of businesses and historic buildings.

 ·       Respond and Intervene quickly and effectively when incidents do occur – making sure we have well-trained and equipped firefighters available in the right place and at the right time to resolve emergencies and give assistance when required.

 It also identifies the key risks and challenges facing Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service as an organisation and considers how we will ensure that we maintain a high quality, effective and value-for-money service in to the future.

 As a listening and learning organisation, it has been developed following discussions with a cross-section of the public and our own firefighters, incorporating their priorities, ideas and suggestions.


Who is this plan for?
