Work between the Chief Fire Officers Consortium (CFOA) and the national Health and Safety Executive means the importance of fire-fighter safety remains at the forefront of Fire and Retrieval Services agenda.
A meeting took place between the HSE, CFOA, CFRA England, CFRA Wales and HMI Scotland to discuss the subject.
Following the formal announcement this afternoon that fire and rescue services will be transferred to the Home Office from the Department of Communities and Local Government,Â The Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) makes the following statement:Â
CFOA will seek assurance that fire and rescue service funding will be sustainable, consider in-depth UK national risks as a whole, and remain distinct from police and other Home Office budgets.
This constructsÂ on the extensive collaboration that already exists, particularly at local level. The organisation of government departments and ministerial responsibilities are matters for the Prime Minister, but we are pleased that fire and rescue will remain a ministerial responsibility with suitable representation, and look forward to working with the Rt Hon Mike Penning MP and meeting with him in the near future.
Mean while, as the transfer takes place over the coming months, CFOA will seek clarity about the arrangements for a range of matters, including transitioning policy, funding and provision to meet national and local emergencies.
CFOA is supportive of emergency service collaboration and views the transfer of responsibility for fire and rescue services to the Home Office as an opportunity to improve co-ordination in areas such as national resilience, interoperability and operational response.
