Cleveland Fire Brigade actively supports its emergency planning partner agencies with a dedicated officer, located in the Cleveland Emergency Planning Unit.
We believe that successful incident management, and achievement of shared objectives, can only come from working closely with our partners in the Local Authority, Police and Ambulance Services.
We also work closely with private sector partners in the appropriate areas of the business community to reduce the risk to the local community.
We work to our partner’s shared objectives as well as our own corporate vision and objectives:
Emergency Planning Shared Objectives:
Cleveland Fire Brigade Corporate Vision:
"To be the best Fire & Rescue Service at protecting local communities."
We plan, prepare and train thoroughly with partners, holding regular exercises covering a wide range of potential scenarios. All this is done to a set of agreed protocols and compliance to the appropriate legislation, but which remain flexible and adaptable to cover almost any eventuality.
Achievement of shared objectives, and our own corporate vision, means we have to be able to respond to all foreseeable challenges, as well as deal with the inherent risks our operating area may throw up.
