Results of the consultation

On 13 February 2013, we took the results of the consultation to Kent and Medway Fire & Rescue Authority, the body which oversees how the Service is performing. In total 352 responses were received, and we are grateful to everyone that took the time to respond.

In summary, the Authority agreed to:

  • Rename the Integrated Risk Management Plan the Safety Plan, as this is easier for the public to understand.
  • Freeze its portion of Council Tax for the third year running.
  • Rename the five strategies mentioned above to:
Original proposed name Revised name
Focus on You Focus on Your Safety
Focus on Businesses Focus on Business
Focus on Resilience Responding to Emergencies
Focus on the Environment Caring for the Environment
Focus on Staff Workforce Strategy
