Collaboration in the Fire and Rescue Service: Improving Efficiency and Effectiveness

Reforms to Fire and Rescue Services have included a focus on collaboration with other emergency services. Fire and Rescue Services now have a ‘high duty to collaborate’ and some PCCs have now taken over governance responsibilities. Collaboration can have a range of benefits and can foster a more effective and efficient fire service.

Join us on Wednesday 16 January for an update on blue light collaboration. You will explore the national landscape and hear the latest good practice from across the country.

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Government action and the need for collaboration between blue-light services
  • Understanding the statutory duty to collaborate
  • Joined-up working with the police to share resources and expertise
  • Update of PCCs taking responsibility of fire and rescue services
  • Next steps for transforming Fire and Rescue Services
  • Learning from success: successful models of sharing services and 
  • Changing cultures and overcoming barriers to collaboration

About the Day:

The morning session will be an expert-led brief on how your service can improve collaboration and integration in your service. You will hear on the common barriers in achieving emergency services integration and how to overcome them.

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
