Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue Service's Community Risk Management Plan 2021/2022

Forward Plan Ref: 2020/128

Contact: Don Crook, Organisational Risk & Assurance Officer Tel: 07775 827259


Report by the Corporate Director Commercial Development, Assets and Investment


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 for Oxfordshire, this will cover the period from 2017 to 2022.


Each year the fire authority creates an action plan which either proposes new projects and/or provides updates on ongoing projects to support the CRMP 5-year strategy. This report provides an update on the ongoing projects for 2021-22.


The Councillor with delegated responsibility for Oxfordshire County Council Fire & Rescue Service is RECOMMENDED to accept the continuation of the projects and adopt in the final version, the CRMP Action Plan 2021-22.
