Operational Assessment

In April 2014, CDDFRS participated in an Operational Assessment (OpA) Fire Peer Challenge, which is a sector led improvement process developed by the Local Government Association (LGA) together with the Chief Fire Officers’ Association (CFOA).
The OpA process is designed to form a structured and consistent basis to drive continuous improvement within fire and rescue services, and provide elected members of fire and rescue authorities and chief fire officers with information that allows them to challenge their operational service delivery to ensure it is efficient, effective and robust. Undertaking a peer challenge is voluntary and is managed and led by the fire sector.
The final report and associated action plan, along with the OpA Toolkit, are available to download below:
