Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service covers the county of Gloucestershire and is run by Gloucestershire County Council. Its mission is ‘working together for a safer Gloucestershire’. It works with local communities to reduce risks to life, property and the environment from fire and other emergencies.
It has 21 stations across the county.
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.
