"The priority of all West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service staff working here in Bradford District is to make the District a safer place to live and work. We do this primarily through prevention activities such as ‘Safe and Well’ checks in people’s homes and through Fire Safety visits to workplaces. In addition, we train hard to ensure that when required, our response to fires and other emergencies is highly professional and effective.
We have set out plans to prioritise our services in the community over the coming year and we would encourage you to take a look at these plans in detail.
We will ensure our resources are targeted to the areas and people of highest risk to ensure the greatest effectiveness in reducing the numbers of fires and other incidents. One of our highest priorities continues to be to work with our key partners, including: Bradford Metropolitan District Council, West Yorkshire Police, Incommunities Housing Association and partners in Health, to lower risks from fire and other dangers to vulnerable members of our community."
District Commander, Christopher Kovacs
