Fire and rescue service effective, efficient and inclusive according to inspectors
England’s independent fire and rescue service watchdog has praised Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service’s work to keep communities safe from fire and to create a fair and inclusive workplace.
In its latest round of inspections Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) rated the Service as ‘good’ across all three of its inspection criteria. This means it is ‘performing as expected’ in the way it prevents and responds to emergencies, spends its money and it looks after its people.
The findings represent an improvement on the last routine inspection in 2018, which suggested the Service needed to do more to promote a positive workplace culture and ensure the wellbeing of staff.
