Consultation Area

Your safety, your Fire and Rescue Service

Once a year we review our Strategic Plan and Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) documents. These explain our aims and objectives and how we assess risk and plan to keep our communities, businesses and those who visit the four local authorities; Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North and North East Lincolnshire safe.

We are consulting on these documents from 12 noon Wednesday 9 September to 12 noon Wednesday 11 November 2020.

We’re interested in your views, thoughts and comments about us and the direction we’re planning.

Our consultation survey has five areas of questions and an opportunity for feedback relating to our Strategic Plan and IRMP documents and you can access the current versions here on our website

Our online consultation survey is available below and if you require the survey in another format, please contact the Corporate Communication team, via 01482 565333 or by email to

What is our IRMP

It is a detailed plan that describes the geographical area we cover as a Fire and Rescue Service, including background information about the demographic, social, economic and environmental issues within our area.

It also identifies:

  • The risks facing our communities
  • How we assess that risk
  • How we help reduce risks
  • How we respond to deal with emergencies when they happen

We use a wide range of data to understand the areas’ most at risk and use this information to help plan prevention activities, our response to emergency incidents and to ensure we have the most appropriate resources available in the right areas at the right time.

We also include information about how we use internal self-assessment and independent scrutiny to ensure the service we provide for you is effective and efficient.

How does it fit in with our Strategic Plan?

It supports the work we are doing to continue to deliver an excellent emergency service to our communities and helps us to look ahead to what we want Humberside Fire and Rescue Service to look like in the future and move swiftly to prepare for what is to come.
