We strongly believe that by publishing information about fires, other emergencies and how we manage our services we will achieve greater understanding, trust, engagement and openness with the public.  Information about our services, particularly the provision of fire safety advice, is critical to achieving our principal aim:

"Provide an excellent Fire and Rescue Service working in partnership to reduce death, injury and economic loss and contribute to community wellbeing."
