Views Sought On Fire Service

The Home Office is seeking the public’s views on how good Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service is and to work out how best to make relevant information available.

It is planned to make more information available online to enable people to measure the fire service against others in performance, value for money and diversity.

This, the Home Office believes, will make the service more accountable to the public.

Daniel Greaves, the interim director of fire and resilience, said: “Last month, the Home Secretary set out her vision for the fire and rescue service in England.

“One element is to bring greater transparency to the fire-and-rescue sector by publishing more service information to the public online, just as the Home Office has done with policing.”
