Mid West Wales Fire service now consulting on Corporate Plan 2021-26

MID and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is consulting on the Service’s Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives for the next year as part of its Draft Corporate Plan 2021-2026.

Chief Fire Officer, Chris Davies said:

“We are delighted to introduce our Corporate Plan 2021-2026, which sets out our vision for the future, “to be a World Leader in Emergency Response and Community Safety”. We are confident that our Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives will enable us to deliver our statutory duties and contribute to the requirements of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

We believe that we are extremely good value for money, however, there is no avoiding the fact that the financial climate we are currently operating in will continue to place additional pressures on the levels of service we provide, as we stretch our resources even further. We will therefore continue to play our part by seeking opportunities to identify cost-effective solutions through on-going and open discussions with staff and the public, around how we can continue to make improvements and future efficiencies!

The on-going COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant challenges for the Fire and Rescue Service. We continue to learn from the impact of the pandemic to ensure our operational response remains unaffected wherever possible. We want to continue developing these areas in order that they can have a positive impact long into the future.

We are committed to adapting to these challenges in a positive way and our Corporate Plan 2021-2026 sets out our Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives for the next five years. We believe that collaborative working is key to the future of our emergency services, in order to successfully deliver shared outcomes, enabling us to improve the way we work, share resources and ultimately save more lives. We also remain committed to finding innovative solutions to improve the way we work, enhance firefighter safety, reduce our impact on the environment and ultimately contribute to the wellbeing of our @ communities.

We recognise that listening to your views is crucial if the Service is to continue to deliver an effective, efficient and improved service to keep you and your families safe. We would encourage you all to let us know what you think of our Strategic Aims and the Improvement and Well-being Objectives we are committing to for 2021-2022.

The Service’s Draft Strategic Aims and Improvement and Well-being Objectives are outlined in more detail on our website; along with our online questionnaire, where you can share your views and help shape the future of your Fire Service.

Whilst this is a formal process for consulting, we would also encourage people to use Facebook and Twitter to have informal conversations.”
