Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2022: consultation analysis

Summary and analysis report of the responses received by the Scottish Government to the consultation on the draft Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2022.

Next Steps

We would like to thank all respondents for taking the time to respond to this consultation. In light of the comments received, the Framework will be amended accordingly in a number of areas. The amended Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2022 will be published on the Scottish Government's website and introduced to the Scottish Parliament by Parliamentary Order.

Many of the Framework's priorities are overarching and are relevant for several aspects of SFRS's role. HM Fire Service Inspectorate (HMFSI) will use the priorities to inform future inspection planning. In addition, SFRS must have regard to these priorities when developing its Strategic Plan; in essence the Framework sets out at a high level what Scottish Ministers expect SFRS to focus upon, and the Service's Strategic Plan should set out the details of how SFRS intend to achieve this.
