5. Prevention, Protection and Response

The Service’s response to wildfires and flooding incidents is set out in its Community Risk Management Plan which is underpinned by a suite of well developed tactical plans and operational guidance documents.

The FRS will continue to make extensive use of, and will ultimately embed, the Environmental Protection element of National Operational Guidance in order to minimise the impact of its operations on the environment.

The FRS will also continue to work closely with partners such as the Environment Agency, conducting joint risk assessments on environmentally sensitive sites as well as requesting their attendance at certain types of incidents to prevent or mitigate the impact of climate change and control pollution.
