Report by Chief Fire Officer


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 2018 Framework requires each Fire and Rescue Authority to produce a publicly available Integrated 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. In April 2017 OFRS published the CRMP 5 year strategy of Oxfordshire, this will cover the period from 2017 to 2022.


Each year the fire authority creates an action plan which proposes a number of new, or provides an update on existing projects to support the CRMP 5 year strategy. The 2020-21 Annual action plan provides an update of the 6 projects being conducted by the fire service in order to meet identified demands or risks.


As the projects within the 2020-21 CRMP are a continuation of those approved the previous year, no further public consultation was required, but was subjected to full internal and external consultation for a period of 12 weeks during 2018 for the initial proposals within the 2019-20 CRMP. Scrutiny is  therefore invited to comment on the proposed action plan.


The following projects will be included within the fire authority’s CRMP for the fiscal year 2020-21:


• Project 1 - Risk profiling local communities.

• Project 2 - Prevention Review.

• Project 3 - On-Call retention review.

• Project 4 - Proactive Role in improving standards in rented housing.

• Project 5 - Establishing Community Safety Advocates or Wardens. 

• Project 6 - To increase the diversity of the Operational Workforce to reflect the community that we serve.



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