Safer Communities Engagement

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) is looking at the way we work with communities in West Yorkshire.

For the last 20 years, we have visited thousands of people in their homes to discuss how to prevent fires happening and we believe this has been really successful.

Our new Safer Communities Strategy will be launched in 2017 and we are now looking at how we can develop our home visits, with the aim of making improvements in people’s health and well-being in addition to the fire safety messages we already deliver.

Fire and Rescue services have received funding cuts from central Government so we have to change the way we supply our services to the community. We may not be able to visit everyone who would like a prevention home visit. 

We therefore, aim to focus our resources to support the more vulnerable members of the community.
This questionnaire is your chance to shape the service that we offer. It will take around five minutes to complete.

All information you supply will be treated confidentially and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
