Safer Communities CIC

The work of a fire and rescue service is not just about responding to fires and other emergencies. It’s about working with partner agencies and the community to help prevent them happening in the first place. The Service is at the forefront of fire services in this country in exploring new and innovative ways to meet today’s challenges and the idea of a CIC was seen as a great opportunity.


That Staffordshire’s communities are safe and thrive.
