Protecting Our Communities.

Community Risk Management Plan 2040

Our Community Risk Management Plan highlights how we intend on addressing the risks, threats and challenges facing our communities and how we propose to meet and reduce them, whilst ensuring our assets and resources are used successfully, providing the best possible service to the communities we serve.

Fire Alarms from Automatic Fire Alarms

An Automatic Fire Alarm (AFA) generally consist of an element that detects the presence of smoke or flames and an element that warns people of a possible fire by a sounder or speech. Some of them may be monitored by an external company that relays the activation notification to our Fire Control room, these companies are known as Alarm Receiving Centres (ARCs).

As of July 1st 2024, we will not respond to any calls originating from Automatic Fire Alarm systems (day and night) with some exception. Find out more here.
