This plan sets out how we will provide a fire and rescue service in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes for the five-year period from 2020-2025. It builds on our achievements over the last five years, considers changes to the risks facing our community, and how we plan to change our services to keep residents, communities and businesses safe from fire and other emergencies.
