We regularly consult with members of our community through events and surveys so that your opinions can help shape our strategy and plans.

Consultation is a two way process. The Fire Authority will listen to those who are consulted and provide feedback on how their views have influenced our services.

In some cases, it may not be possible to act upon residents’ views and suggestions. This will be justified fairly and in good time to those affected.
