The Unwanted Fire Signals consultation has now closed.

Unwanted Fire Signals consultation

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Unwanted Fire Signals consultation. The responses have now been collated and will be presented at our next Fire Authority Meeting, where they will be considered to inform overall decisions.

The decisions will be based upon the responses to the questions below:

Q1:In the future we may decide not to attend an automatic fire alarm (AFA) if it occurs during the normal working hours of the business concerned, only attending if we receive confirmation that there is a fire at the premises. As a member of our community, would you support this decision?

Q2: In the event of repeated false alarms, we may begin to charge businesses for attending automatic fire alarms (AFAs) when there is no fire. Any monies recovered will be used to fund Public Safety initiatives for prevention and protection. As a member of our community, would you support this decision?
