A 12-week consultation on proposals to update the way Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue delivers its services has been launched.

Feedback is being sought on proposals contained within the Integrated Risk Management Planning consultation document 2015-16.

Proposals relate to:

l Potential savings options to meet anticipated budget reductions.

l Introducing an alternative crewing arrangement on some Retained Duty System fire stations so that fire engines with fewer than four firefighters can attend certain incidents.

l Revising the way in which the response standard to house fires and road accidents is presented.

l Increasing the number of fire stations that provide a co-responder service for medical emergencies.

l Setting the service priorities for 2015-16.

Full details can be found in the Integrated Risk Management Planning consultation document 2015-16, available on Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue’s website www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/lfr, where people can also respond to the consultation.
