Executive Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

On 1 April 2013, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) takes on its full range of functions and its status as an Other Significant National Body.

As required by Section 40 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, as amended by the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012, the Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2013 provides priorities and objectives for the new SFRS on the carrying out of its functions, set in the context of the overarching purpose that the SFRS should adhere to. It sets out Scottish Ministers’ expectations of the SFRS as the challenge of bringing together the best from the previous eight Fire and Rescue Services to create a modern, effective and efficient SFRS continues. 1 April 2013 is not the end of the Fire Reform journey, but marks a significant milestone in this major public service reform programme.
