This strategic-level corporate guidance aims to assist fire and rescue authorities in providing an operational response while taking into account:

  • Legislative responsibilities
  • Data management
  • Risk management
  • Health and safety management
  • Site-Specific Risk Information
  • Emergency response plans
  • Operational assurance
  • Competence and training
  • Operational learning
  • Legal proceedings

As many of these topics have interdependencies, it is suggested that the publication be considered in its entirety. Each topic is accompanied by a list of suggested corporate actions.

This corporate guidance is not intended to prescribe the approach that individual fire and rescue authorities adopt. Its main aim is to support the implementation of National Operational Guidance by fire and rescue services.
