Consultation on the Draft Priorities for the North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Plan 2019/21 – Message from Julia Mulligan
I would like as many people as possible to tell me their views on the draft priorities for the fire service. As Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, it is my responsibility to produce a Fire and Rescue Plan setting out the strategic vision, priorities and objectives for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service over the next two years. I will use this to hold your Fire and Rescue Service to account. Before I finalise the plan I want to hear from yourself, your community, businesses and others who work alongside the service. I want to make sure the priorities being proposed reflect what you expect from your fire and rescue service.
For details on how to take part in the survey, please go to our ‘Have Your Say’ page.
