Education and Engagement

Engaging with the voices of our communities helps us to better understand the needs of those communities and, importantly, supports the continued development of your Service. Providing opportunities to engage with our staff members and the communities we serve enables better service adaptations for you, and helps us understand what it is that your communities need from your Fire and Rescue Service. The residents of Staffordshire felt very positively towards maintaining and developing our culture of openness, transparency, and trust.

Through our Safety Plan consultation our residents have suggested that they strongly support the further development of our business sector support; ensuring that they are safe, well informed of their legislative fire safety duties, and that we help them maintain this. Our exciting partnership with The Prince’s Trust through the Safer Communities Community Interest Company is one way this improvement has been enabled, transforming the Service’s approach to youth engagement, along with the work that is undertaken within local communities.
