Integrated Risk Management Plan 2021-2025 Consultation

Help shape the future of Shropshire's Fire and Rescue Service

Consultation is now closed

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is looking for your input into the organisation’s priorities over the next four years.

The consultation phase helps contribute to the Service’s Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) 2021-2025. The final plan will detail the priorities the service will adopt and the approach it will take to ensure the protection of local communities, the reduction of risk and the commitment to firefighter safety.


This draft Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) is Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service’s (SFRS) public consultation document. Your feedback is important and will help the Service plan and identify risks effectively. Detailed within this draft, are proposals describing how the Service will keep Shropshire’s communities - and those that visit - safe over the next four years. It outlines how the Service will meet Government expectations of fire and rescue authorities, as detailed in the Fire and Rescue National Framework 2018. It also explores the main risks to communities and how available resources will be used efficiently to reduce those risks.

Risk Reviews

To understand what risk looks like in Shropshire, the Service has undertaken extensive research using expert analysis of partners including local authorities, evidence from national data, reviews of local incidents and issues arising from risk workshops involving all departments and fire stations across the Service. The results are captured in the following risk reviews, which have been used as the basis for the IRMP:

Defining Risk

Diversification in Agriculture



Housing and Housing Market Analysis

National and Regional Risk

Organisational Risk


Population and Demographics
