What we do

There is much more to the modern fire and rescue service than putting out fires. Our staff spend their time working to keep their communities safe and helping to prevent fires and other incidents occurring. A key part of our role is to ensure we are able to respond when you need us the most, but that’s not only responding to fires.

We respond to floods, road traffic collisions, rail incidents, confined space rescues and much more.

Preventing these incidents from happening is far better than relying on emergency response. We carry out home safety visits and work with local businesses to ensure they keep you safe in your place of work or recreation. We work with other agencies such as the police and local councils to ensure we help the members of the community that need us the most. We work with young people to educate and involve them as well as a host of other community-based activities. We also investigate the causes of fire.

Take a look at our ‘Your Safety’ pages to see all our prevention advice for homes and businesses.
