‘Have your ​say’ 

Where are we now?
The current disposition and deployment of our assets has evolved over many years and is  largely  linked  to historical risk factors. We need to establish  whether  our  assets  and  resources  are  matched  to  the  prevailing risks within our communities.

The risk review preparatory work took place in 2015 and a project team has been set up. The requisite resources have been secured in order to complete this important work.

What are we planning to do and why?
We need to fully understand the risks that our communities face and ensure that we identify the most appropriate deployment of our services to reduce that risk as much as possible. Carrying out a review on all our risks will enable us to clearly identify how we can optimise matching our resources to the prevailing risk in our communities.
By conducting an evidence based and robust risk review we will be able to accurately identify prevailing risks and the resources we are currently able to  deploy  to  mitigate  these  risks. This  will  assist  us  to  ensure  our assets are in the appropriate locations and available when our communities need them.

How and when are we going to deliver this?
We will use a detailed analysis  of  data  and  information  from  our  Strategic  Assessment  (also  an  objective  for this year, objective 6) and incident data combined with  computer  modeling  to  provide  us  with  a  clear  risk profile of our Service area.
The Risk Review will be completed in 2016/17 in order to shape and inform our decision-making for 2017/18.
How will we measure success?
We will monitor and report our performance in line with the Welsh Government’s Performance  Indicators for the Welsh Fire and Rescue Services. The findings of the review will be shared with our stakeholders wherever possible.
What will this mean to you?
By accurately identifying the risks faced by our communities and matching our resources to these risks we will be able to ensure that Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.
