Draft plan for 2015/16 - Making Cheshire Safer

The twelve week consultation on the draft Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) for 2015/16 has now ended. During this time the Service consulted with the public, key partners and stakeholders and members of staff.

The draft 2015/16 Plan proposes to continue with the emergency response programme outlined in previous IRMPs (IRMP10 and IRMP 11) which has previously been consulted upon. We are also seeking views on a number of other subjects this year, including:

  • Your view on Cheshire Fire Authority’s proposal to increase its share of council tax by 1.99% in 2015/16.

  • Your views on the introduction of a firefighters’ apprenticeship programme.

  • How you would find out about major emergencies.
