Surrey Fire and Rescue Service's Making Surrey Safer Plan

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service's Making Surrey Safer Plan is a document that Surrey County Council is required to produce to show what we do, why we do it, and what our plans are for the future. In this plan we take into account factors that affect the way we can run Surrey's fire and rescue service, like the budget we are given, the population of Surrey and how the types of calls we respond to are changing.

We want to provide the best service that we can to all residents in Surrey and continue to prioritise responding quickly to emergencies. We also need to ensure that we adapt to meet the needs of our community, government legislation, changing risks and improve our service to respond to the outcomes from our recent Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) inspection.

Our proposals for 2020 - 2023 are explained in the Making Surrey Safer Plan - full version (PDF) and Making Surrey Safer Plan - summary version (PDF).

The proposals are based on our Community Risk Profile (PDF) which helps us understand where the risks associated with places in the county are, where the most vulnerable people are and when and where the risks are greater. Our Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) (PDF) and the appendices to the EIA (PDF) provides more information about the consultation. Surrey Fire and Rescue Service's Inspection Improvement plan (PDF) explains more about how we are addressing the findings from our recent HMICFRS inspection.


The consultation is now closed and the findings are being analysed. Thank you to everyone who took part. Surrey County Council's Cabinet will review the consultation feedback and decide how to proceed in September 2019.
