What Does The Service Cost?
As with other public services, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is facing major cuts in funding, which will result in major changes in the way the service is provided. It is likely therefore that the cost of the Service will reduce significantly in the future. The leaflet below highlights the current costs for providing the Service and where that money comes from.
The table below provides details of our investment in major capital schemes such as major building works and purchase of fire appliances. Unlike revenue expenditure, which is mostly funded through grants, this is funded through borrowing with only a small proportion funded through central government grants.
