HMICFRS Inspection Report Action Plan

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) - Inspection Report Action Plan

This Action Plan details the proposed approach to addressing matters raised within the HMICFRS 2019 Inspection report. 

The HMICFRS inspection methodology considers fire and rescue service performance against three pillars (effectiveness, efficiency and people) for each of which a judgement is given; outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.

There is no overall judgement covering service performance.

During its 2019 inspection BFRS was judged:

  • Effectiveness – requires improvement
  • Efficiency – requires improvement
  • People – good

Depending on the severity of matters found HMICFRS may provide suggested areas for improvement, causes for concern and recommendations.

A recommendation will always accompany a cause for concern.

The report for this Service identifies 11 areas for improvement, one cause for concern accompanied by two recommendations.

This Action Plan details the proposed approach to addressing these matters.
