Chief Fire Officer's welcome
Chief Fire Officer
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the new look website of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service. We as a Service recognise the importance of the Internet as a means of communication and are continually striving to ensure that whatever information you require concerning our work, or your safety, you can find it on this site.
In addition to describing what we do as a Service and how our activities are managed, the main focus of this site is to provide information for businesses, partners and most importantly the public, as to how the threat posed by fire can be minimised; usually very easily and at only minimal cost.
Through the 'promoting safety' section of the website you can access a wide range of literature on fire prevention, ranging from fire safety in the home to much more specialist advice, such as fire safety for caravans, mobile homes or boats. The site also contains details of how you can contact us should you not be able to easily find the information you require.
Whilst the number one priority of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service has for many years been to reduce the number of fires and associated deaths and injuries in the County, we are also responsible for a much wider range of emergency responses including, for example, rescuing people from road traffic collisions, dealing with flooding and water rescue incidents, reducing the risk from chemical spillages and preparing to deal with terrorist incidents wherever they may occur in the United Kingdom. Hopefully this site will allow you to learn how we achieve these wide ranging duties through our highly motivated, well equipped and competent staff, who have long been recognised as providing an excellent service to the public of Shropshire.
Please use our website to improve your safety; there is something for everyone. And, if you have any questions at all, please call us now - don't wait for a fire!
Prevention is our speciality!
