Jersey Fire and Rescue Service (JFRS) is reaching out to members of the public for their assistance in assessing levels of risk and planning how to protect Islanders in the future.
JFRS are asking Islanders to complete an online survey which asks a series of questions focusing on their engagement with the Service, risk factors that they may have in their homes and their perception of the main causes of fires in Jersey.
The results of the survey will help to inform the JFRS’s Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) for 2020-2023. All fire and rescue services in the UK are required to have an IRMP with the intention of saving lives, improving public safety and reducing emergency incidents.
Jason Masterman, Group Commander and Head of Fire Safety commented: “In order to be an efficient and effective fire service, we need to ensure that we continue to provide a first class emergency service; whilst considering through the Integrated Risk Management Plan, how we make the best use of our resources to prevent, protect and respond to fires and other incidents in the future.“
The IRMP, when distributed this Autumn will explain the JFRS’s activities in more detail, its strategic assessment of risk for the Island, as well as future prevention, protection, response and resilience arrangements.
Access and complete the survey
JFRS will be at a series of different venues throughout the Island in early September to engage with members of the public who are unable to access or complete the survey online.
