Report by Director for Community Safety & Chief Fire Officer (CMDDL4).


The Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004 requires the Secretary of State to prepare a Fire and Rescue National Framework to which Fire Authorities must have regard when discharging their functions. The 2012 Framework requires each Fire and Rescue Authority to produce a publicly available Intergrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP). Within Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service (OFRS) we have called this our Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) to make it more meaningful to the public. This report proposes a number of projects to be included within the Fire Authority’s CRMP for the fiscal year 2018-19.


The proposals in this report were presented to the Performance Scrutiny Committee in September 2017 .


The agreed proposals within this Action Plan 2018-19 have been subjected to full internal and external consultation for a period of 12 weeks. Cabinet is  therefore invited to comment on the proposed Action Plan, consultation responses and management responses to the consultation responses.


The following projects will be included within the fire authority’s CRMP for the fiscal year 2018/19:


·         Project 1: Establishing Community Safety Advocates or Wardens.  (ACO Grahame Mitchell)

·         Project 2: To increase the diversity of the operational workforce in order to reflect the community that we serve. (David Heycock)

·         Project 3: To review resourcing of our fire protection service delivery and the effective enforcement of fire safety legislation in the County. (Richard Webb)

·         Project 4: Implement the outcomes of the 2017/18 review whole-time shift duty system (David Heycock)


Our medium term financial plan and supporting business strategies underpin the proposals within our CRMP action plan.


The Deputy Leader is RECOMMENDED to accept the proposed projects and adopt in the final version of the CRMP Action Plan 2018-19.
