Fire service information, including recruitment, safety advice and training courses.

Our strategy

How we set out to ensure compliance with the Fire Safety Order to keep West Sussex safe.

Our Fire Safety Enforcement Strategy 2020-22 is available on request.

Our aim is to:

  • achieve safer premises and community sectors where there are no preventable deaths or injuries in fires
  • reduce fire losses to minimal levels
  • make sure premises receive consistent and common advice, information and enforcement practices.

To achieve this we need to achieve operational and community safety excellence in the most cost-effective way, putting people and property protection at the centre of everything we do. This includes:

  • the safety and diversity needs of people in the community
  • fire protection training and development of our own staff.

All service users need to be confident that:

  • fire and rescue services can provide the right information and advice to support them with compliance
  • those enforcing the legislation are consistent when making decisions in line with relevant enforcement procedures
  • any processes are similar, to avoid confusion.

We adhere to the West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service privacy notice. This details how we use your information.
