The development of close working relationships with these partners and agencies enable Odsal personnel to better serve and protect the people, homes and businesses of Odsal and West Yorkshire. These partnerships allow the identification of people at risk and the most vulnerable members of society.

The community fire safety strategy aims to reduce the number of fires which will save lives and improve the environment. Home fire safety policies allow the opportunity to provide free smoke detectors.
