Over the past ten years, through careful planning, we have seen a reduction in the number of incidents we attend. With better outcomes for those affected and the communities within which they occur. We have achieved all this while making large savings.

Value for Money
We are tremendous value for money and from a survey recently undertaken, it seems you do too. Since 2006 we have already reduced our budget by 20%, that's £9million! and as a service we currently cost you £4 a month, that's only 14p per day!
 
Following a difficult year, we are entering an even more challenging financial future and we will need to make further efficiencies
 
Keeping your community safe
Our 58 fire stations covering 12,000 square kilometers with 1351 staff attend over 13,000 incidents every year.
 
The incidents we've attended
Over the last 5 years, we have attended:
  • 2811 house fires,
  • 882 non-domestic fires,
  • 4863 road traffic accidents,
  • 4118 grass and forestry fires,
  • 1719 flooding incidents and
  • 12,496 medical responses.
 
Home Safety Checks
As a Service, we have:
  • Deliver 85,682 home safety checks throughout our communities,
  • Engaged with over 184,401 young people through education and prevention programmes and
  • Undertaken 10,978 business inspections.
 
This costs you just 14p a day which is only £52 a year!

By the end of October each year, we publish our Annual Performance Assessment.  Our Annual Performance Assessment tells our staff, communities and stakeholders what outcomes and benefits have been delivered against the previous year’s Improvement and Well-being Objectives. Our Annual Performance Assessment also identifies how we have contributed to the Wellbeing goals, set out within the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

Firefighters and Community Fire Safety staff from the Service will now visit domestic properties to provide home safety advice and will supply and install a smoke alarm free of charge, where appropriate. 

These checks are the cornerstone of the proactive role the Service is adopting in its drive to reduce the deaths and injuries that are caused by accidental fires.​

The provision of smoke alarms and other home safety items by Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service is supported by funding from Welsh Government.
