Operational Efficiency Programme

26 June 2013

Invitation to Humberside Fire and Rescue Service’s Operational Efficiency Programme engagement sessions

Over recent years, like most public sector organisations, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has seen its budget reduce significantly and this is set to continue. It is anticipated that by April 2018, the organisation’s budget will have been reduced by a further £5m.

As a member of the community we serve, we would like to invite you to participate in an engagement session to learn about a range of options that have been developed which, if implemented, provide an opportunity to achieve a maximum saving of around £4m.

The engagement session will involve participants voting on their preferred option in each geographical area using individual voting keypads. The system will collect and process the votes cast to give an overview of the preferences of the group as a whole and ultimately, at the end of the engagement activity, show the preferred options in each area.

The engagement sessions are also an opportunity to make suggestions for alternative options for consideration.

This approach is viewed as a more balanced way to explain the programme in the wider context that we operate rather than focus entirely on local issues in a specific locality. Engagement activity is also taking place with staff and on Monday 9 September Humberside Fire Authority will consider the outcomes from the engagement before deciding which options to take out for formal public consultation. These events are for engagement only. Subject to the Fire Authority’s decision in September, formal public consultation will not start until later in the year.

The locations, dates and times for engagement sessions being held across the Service area are listed below.
