Community Fire Safety (CFS)
This department has two main functions and is split into two teams: Safety in the Home Team, responsible for fire safety in the home; and Safety in the Community Team, responsible for arson and risk reduction in the community.
As everyone in the Fire Service knows, our primary objectives are to save lives, protect property and render humanitarian services.
In Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service those traditional, but still entirely relevant, ideals are encompassed in our vision statement of 'Putting Shropshire's Safety First'.
National Community Fire Safety Centre Campaigns
We support every campaign launched by the NCFSC.
Whole-time watches are responsible for co-ordinating each campaign. Innovative ideas to get the fire safety message across to the people of Shropshire included the Malicious Calls campaign run in July and Electric Blanket Safety in September.
