A public consultation opened in respect of the Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service Budget 2021/22 asking for views on a range of financial options, allowing us to fund priorities approved by the Fire and Rescue Authority which build on proposals set out in Our Plan 2020/23.

IRMP 2017-2021

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Authority (DFRA) is required to produce and publish an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP). This plan is a core strategic document which drives all our work to respond to all foreseeable risks in Derbyshire. 

We manage risk through our activities in Prevention, Protection and Response, and are always looking for other ways to improve how we work. Our ‘Service development themes’ provide the strategic focus for us to do this. They are similar to those we have used previously and we hope to follow these strategic statements to concentrate our work for the challenges we face in 2017- 2021. In addition, each year from 2017-21 we will develop an action plan which will give direction to our work activities. We consulted on the draft IRMP between 5th December 2016 and 12th February 2017 and the report of this consultation can be found below. This was reported to Fire Authority on 16th March 2017.
