HM Fire Service Inspectorate in Scotland: Chief Inspector's plan 2021 to 2024

The Chief Inspector's plan - 2021 to 2024 describes the role and functions of HMFSI.

The plan sets out in broad terms our intended programme for the inspection of the SFRS. However, due to Coronavirus (COVID 19) our revised inspection activity for the immediate future is set out in the accompanying summary inspection table below. 

Our approach to our inspection programme during these circumstances will be pragmatic and flexible.
