Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service: Felixstowe IRMP Consultation Survey January 2014

Welcome to Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service's consultation on the Integrated Risk Management Plan for Felixstowe Fire Station.

In early 2011 Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service carried out a public and stakeholder consultation on its Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) which included a number of changes to operational fire cover arrangements across the county.

The plan included a proposal to change the firefighter crewing arrangements at Felixstowe fire station froma 7-day day crewed arrangement supported by on-call firefighters to an on-call only fire station.

The outcome of the 2011 public consultation raised a number of concerns and these were considered by Suffolk County Council's Cabinet. They agreed to amend the proposal and introduce the changes in 3 phases.

This would enable the implications of each stage to be carefully assessed in a review by the Fire Service; these reviews would then be used to inform a further decision about moving to the next stage.

The purpose of this consultation is to seek your views on the introduction of the final stage – this is a change from the current 5-day nucleus crewed model to a fully On-Call model for the 2 fire engines at the fire station. This would remove the last 4 full time firefighters at the station.

Your views are important to us and we would be grateful if you could please take a few moments to complete the following brief questions.

Thank you.
