We set high standards for our performance because we’re committed to delivering the best service for our communities.
In 2019, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service was graded as Good by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS).
The Good grading was achieved for all three areas of inspection:
- Effectiveness – our emergency response and services we provide to the public
- Efficiency – how we manage our finances and how efficient we are
- People – our culture, training and how we treat our people
HMICFRS stated in its summary:
“Overall, we commend Tyne and Wear FRS for its performance. This provides a good foundation for improvement in the year ahead.”

Fire safety activities are targeted at premises that we believe present the greatest risk to the community. It’s important to us that the way we enforce the law supports our community, businesses and the Government’s expectations.
