The year ahead for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service

Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service has published its priorities for the year ahead.

The Annual Service Plan 2024-25 details the work we will undertake this year to deliver the strategy set out in our Community Risk Management Plan 2022-27.

Justin Johnston, Chief Fire Officer, said:

“The year ahead will see the fruition of a series of improvements, innovations, and investments intended to provide the best possible services for the people of Lancashire.

“Sweeping changes to building fire safety standards, the increasing impacts of climate change emergencies, and opportunities and risks posed by new technology have altered the ways fire and rescue services keep people safe.

“We have been determined to adapt to these challenges, often leading innovation in our sector and influencing national fire and rescue service policy.

“From advanced fire appliances better equipped to respond to flooding and wildfires and incidents in tall buildings and businesses, to pioneering technology that will have an impact on everything from operational firefighting to performance reporting, the Service is continuously improving.

“Valuing our people so they can focus on making Lancashire safer is central to everything we set out to achieve. Investing in their training, equipment, wellbeing, and safety is a long-held priority that will continue this year.”
