Annual fire budget
In 2021/22 the gross budget requirement is £36.3m
The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner has responsibility for the fire budget, which comprises a combination of central government grants and money from the local police precept.
About 30 per cent of funding comes from the Government while the remaining 70 per cent is raised locally, mainly through the ‘fire precept‘– the amount you pay for the fire and rescue service in your council tax.
Our government funding is reducing year on year and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service needs to make savings of £3.5m each year.
