Integrated Risk Management Plan 2007/08 – 2008/09

Mid term consultation

A 12-week period of consultation, on progress so far and future direction, on our IRMP was undertaken during November, December and January. We did not receive any negative feedback, and in fact those that did respond were extremely satisfied with the way we are running things.

This year we are building on the success of our ‘working with others’ to reduce the risk on the Island, this includes a far more focussed drive to carry out Home Fire Safety Checks in those homes that are considered to be at greatest risk of fire, or the inability to react sufficiently should one occur.

Our work with Young People is gaining pace, particularly through our association with the Youth Inclusion Forum. This should have a positive impact on the number of malicious calls received by our Control Centre and a reduction in anti-social activity, such as rubbish fires, car fires etc. as well as contributing to the wider community by helping our young people to understand the advantages of team-working, mutual support and increasing their self-esteem by participating in initially perceived impossible activities.

We are also working with other parts of the Council to better understand where the risks on the Island are greatest and therefore where we should be directing our resources to deliver the best service we possibly can within current budgets.

Whilst the mandatory consultation period is over we are always pleased to receive comments and observations from members of the public. Indeed, in our endeavour to continuously provide an improved service we welcome your suggestions.

Please contact us at fire.service@iow.gov.uk should you wish to do so.
