Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service operates 31 stations. It employs 730 people, including operational staff and a range of support staff such as business support, health and safety, equality and diversity, training and development, engineering and workshops, procurement, critical control, performance and support for staff.
The work the service does is varied and includes everything from fighting fires and rescuing people, to attending road traffic collisions and promoting community safety within local schools and to the wider communities within Cornwall.
For over 160 years, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has independently assessed and reported on the efficiency and effectiveness of police forces and policing, in the public interest.
In summer 2017, HMIC (now HMICFRS) took on inspections of England’s fire & rescue services, assessing and reporting on their efficiency, effectiveness and leadership.
