Draft Strategic Plan 2019-22

Closed 18 Jul 2019

Opened 9 May 2019


The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service invites you to share your views on our draft Strategic Plan 2019-22. As a cornerstone of our ongoing development, this Strategic Plan aims to ensure that we remain fully committed to improving the safety and wellbeing of the communities of Scotland that we serve. You can download a copy of the draft Plan from a link at the bottom of this page.  

The draft Strategic Plan was prepared following a statutory review of our current Strategic Plan 2016-19.  A number of evidence sources were used to support the review, resulting in several recommendations which were taken forward to inform the development of the draft Strategic Plan 2019-22.  The Review Report can also be accessed at bottom of this page. 

Why We Are Consulting

We have a duty to have in place a Strategic Plan covering a period of three years.  As we move into our seventh year since we were established, we are required to have a new Strategic Plan for 2019-22 published by October  2019. 

This is your Service and we want to hear your views on our ambition to balance national priorities with the needs of local communities – now and in the future.

The consultation on our draft Strategic Plan 2019-22 is open for ten weeks, closing on 18 July 2019.

Your opinion matters and we hope you will help us to shape the future of the fire and rescue service delivered in Scotland.
