The National Framework sets out the Government's expectations for the Service and what is required of Fire and Rescue Authorities to meet those expectations. The Government has a duty under the FRS Act 2004 to produce the Framework and keep it current.

Fire and Rescue Authorities must have regard to the Framework in carrying out their duties.
