“Your Fire Service, your say” – Commissioner Zoë to host online meeting driven by interest from the public
This meeting will focus on how North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service ensures that the right people and resources are in the right place, with a focus on rural areas.
‘Right people – Right support in Rural areas’
How the Service has aligned its resources and capabilities to the range of risks presented in rural areas to ensure it has the ‘right people with the right training, skills and equipment, in the right place at the right time to provide the right intervention’ (covering response, prevention and protection).
Residents of York and North Yorkshire are invited to join the online public meeting which will include allotted time for the Commissioner to ask questions sent in by the public.
Questions relating to fire safety are encouraged but questions for any area of the fire service are welcome and should be submitted using the online form on the Commissioners website: https://www.northyorkshire-pfcc.gov.uk/YourVoice/
The purpose of these regular online public meetings is to hold the Chief Fire officer to account for their delivery of the Commissioner’s Fire and Rescue Plan, to ensure the service is achieving its objectives and generating positive outcomes in the interests of the public.
Commissioner Zoë says:
“My online public meetings offer updates for the public in areas of concern, whilst providing full transparency on how I act as Commissioner to ensure North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is delivering what they should to keep residents of York and North Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
“It is within my role to be the voice of communities and to advocate for the people of York and North Yorkshire when challenging areas of fire and rescue. To do this, I need to hear from members of the public and so if you are a resident in our county, please send me your questions and tune in to watch them being answered. This is your fire service, which needs your say.”
Commissioner Zoë would also like to remind residents of York and North Yorkshire to be respectful and considerate of others when sharing their thoughts or concerns.
