Greater Manchester’s first Fire Plan outlines the work GMFRS will undertake to help make our city-region safe. The plan includes six priorities and a number of commitments to residents, businesses and partners across Greater Manchester.
This policy statement of intent will be formally reviewed on an annual basis but will be reviewed more frequently if required.
This is the first version of our Strategic Assessment of Risk (SAoR) and will be utilised to inform the development our Fire Plan and Annual Delivery Plan.
We maintain this document to help us to identify and mitigate the opportunities and threats that might impact on our ability to deliver our functions.
Programme for Change
In 2018 The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Deputy Mayor, Interim Chief Fire Officer and Greater Manchester Combined Authority Chief Executive announced a whole Service review of GMFRS, based on learning, listening and changing, together with a strong focus on improving leadership and culture throughout the Service.
The review – known as Programme for Change – commenced in April 2018.
Programme for Change laid the foundations for a stronger organisation that is focused on keeping communities safe and delivering a sustainable, affordable, frontline first emergency service.
The Programme was formally closed on 31 March 2021.
