This report concerns the Integrated Risk Management Plan and the establishment of a assurance panel to monitor its delivery.
Councillor Andy Crump (Portfolio Holder for Fire & Rescue and Community Safety) explained that the establishment of an assurance panel demonstrated the way in which the Fire and Rescue Service was prepared to open itself up to challenge. Cabinet was informed of the recent assessment of the service regarding its response to the Covid-19 Pandemic. What is required now is a cross party group that will complement the critical friend work that is undertaken with two other fire and rescue services.
Councillor Sarah Boad welcome the establishment of a permanent oversight body such as the assurance panel.
A vote was held.
