Commissioner Zoë goes on the road to hear views on proposals for North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service

North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Zoë Metcalfe will be in Huntington tomorrow (Thursday 9 June) for her first public roadshow event to hear views on proposed changes to fire and rescue services.

She will be outside Huntington Post Office & Shop on North Moor Road (YO32 9QN) between 10am and 4pm to update residents on the new North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Risk and Resource Model and discuss what it means for the community.

Later in the week, Commissioner Zoë will be in Scarborough for her second event. It takes place on Friday 10 June outside the Brunswick Shopping Centre (YO11 1UE) between 10am and 4pm.

Commissioner Zoë said:

“It’s my job to set the direction of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service and therefore consider the proposals and make a decision.

“Before I do that, I want to know what the public think and I encourage people to come along to one of my roadshow consultation events this summer to speak with myself or a member of my team, and to complete the online questionnaire.”

Zoë is also encouraging people to share their views online by completing the consultation at www.TellCommissionerZoe.co.uk

Commissioner Zoë is considering proposals for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s new Risk and Resource Model 2022-2025, which sets out how the Service would seek to deploy its people, equipment, and resources. These proposals are based on an extensive risk assessment across North Yorkshire and York, which has identified the likelihood and severity of fires, road traffic collisions, water related incidents, and other emergencies.
