Strengthening our FRS

Welcome to the consultation portal for Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.

Using this portal is easy and means that you will be able to make a difference when decisions about your Fire & Rescue Service are made about things that affect you and the area you live in.

This is your chance to engage directly with us and speak up about what is happening on your doorstep.

Wiltshire & Swindon Fire Authority and Dorset Fire Authority are both independently considering the best way to protect frontline emergency services as they both have continuing financial pressures and public expenditure reductions. This funding gap could significantly threaten frontline services if nothing else is done to make the necessary savings.

Despite making substantial savings over the past four years, we still have to find large sums of money, which is unachievable unless we are prepared to do things differently.

Wiltshire & Swindon Combined Fire Authority has not selected a preferred option for this process; however, Dorset Fire Authority has stated that a combination of the two Fire & Rescue Services is its preferred option and additional information is available on its consultation pages to support this – click here for more.
