Fire Standards Board opens consultations on duo of new Fire Standards
27 December 2022
THE FIRE Standards Board has outlined the next two Fire Standards, the proposed contents for which have now been shared with Fire and Rescue Services and all stakeholders for consultation. Forming part of the suite of Fire Standards relating to service delivery, the Fire Control Fire Standard is now open for consultation, as is the Fire Standard for Communications, Engagement and Consultation. Both consultations are open until 6 February 2023.
The Fire Standard on Fire Control has been developed with input from the National Fire Chiefs Council’s (NFCC) Fire Control team, the NFCC lead for fire control, the Mobilising Officers Group and also with input from fire control specialists across a range of Fire and Rescue Services.
The Communications, Engagement and Consultation Fire Standard has been developed with input from FirePro UK, the NFCC communications teams and communication and collaboration specialists from a wide range of Fire and Rescue Services.
Consultation responses will now be considered, with a quality assurance process taking place prior to the launch of the final standards.
The Fire Standards Board wishes to thank all those who support its development work, take part in peer reviews and respond to its consultations.
