The role of the sector is changing. Successful fire prevention programmes mean fire services now have a much broader remit around community support and rescue.
Funding reductions have also forced the sector to find savings and consider consolidating.
What's more, police, ambulance and fire services are increasingly sharing frontline and back-office services. With all these changes, the sector is busy reviewing its equipment and crewing needs. We can help you turn these challenges to your advantage.
