Have your say on our draft plan for 2018/19
The consultation on our draft Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) for 2018/19 is underway and will last until Tuesday 2nd January 2018. During this time we will consult with the public, key partners and stakeholders and members of staff.
The draft plan follows on from the Service’s second Emergency Response Review, which was initially consulted upon last year and is underway at the moment. Work to examine several options as part of that review continues and are explained in further detail in the draft Plan and summary document, which can be found on our website.

Brake Road Safety Week
We're supporting Brake Road Safety Week from 20th to 26th November 2017 and the theme this year is Speed Down Save Lives.
In the UK speeding is still a major problem. It causes needless crashes, untold suffering and stops people living safe and healthy lives. That is why we are encouraging everyone to Speed Down Save Lives for Road Safety Week 2017.
Driving is unpredictable and if something unexpected happens on the road ahead – such as a child stepping out from between parked cars - it is a driver’s speed that will determine whether they can stop in time and, if they can’t stop, how hard they will hit.
