Environment

Environment and climate change issues are of increasing concern in today's society and addressing these issues is of growing importance to the Public Sector.

Cheshire Fire Authority takes its public leadership responsibility seriously and, as such, the Service has introduced an Environmental Strategy and Policy which sets out how this responsibility will be actioned.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service sign the Nottingham Declaration

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service shows commitment to the global concern about climate change by signing the Nottingham Declaration, which is a public commitment to take action against climate change.

The Declaration was launched in October 2000 in Nottingham and has now been signed by more than 300 local authorities and a number of fire and rescue services.

Environmental strategy

Our Environmental Strategy sets out the main principles, proposals and required actions and also covers roles and responsibilities, performance management, links to other strategies, the legal framework and an Environmental Action Plan.

Our commitment to the environment

Our Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) also includes commitments to the environment under our Key Proposals for 2008/2009.

The Service needs to ensure that:

  • The needs of stakeholders, partners and communities within Cheshire, Halton and Warrington are met through consultation and engagement

  • Environmental awareness and training is provided

  • Internal policies comply with all legislative requirements and local, regional and national best practice. 

Environment Management System

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has achieved ISO 14001, the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems, at Headquarters, Crewe Fire Station, Congleton Fire Station and Nantwich Fire Station (pilot stations). 

The accreditation is valid for 3 years and ISO 14001 will be rolled out to the remaining Stations before the end of March 2014.  Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service was previously accredited to BS 8555 Acorn Scheme Phases 1, 2 and 3 at the same sites for our Environment Management System (EMS).
