Integrated Risk Management Plan

What is Integrated Risk Management?

'Integrated Risk Management' is the development of a balanced approach by the Fire and Rescue Service to reducing risk within the community.

This is achieved by combining prevention, protection and emergency response, on a risk-assessed basis in order to improve the safety of the community and also create a safer working environment for fire-fighters.

IRMP Supplement 2019 - 2021

A 12-week consultation begins today (Thursday 14th March) on the draft Supplement to Merseyside Fire & Rescue Authority's Integrated Risk Managed Plan (IRMP) 2017-20.

If approved, the alternative proposals contained within the supplement will extend the current plan to 2021, aligning it to our medium term financial plans.

When reviewing the plans, we ask that you give particular regard to the alternative proposals contained within the supplement, as it is these options that we are consulting on as an alternative to those approved back in 2016/17 when the plan was first considered.

Since then, a number of significant national and international incidents have occurred. These incidents, combined with changes to the City Region infrastructure and the initial findings of Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) have quite rightly given the Chief Fire Officer and Authority cause to review the sustainability of its plans to ensure that they are still fit for purpose.

The supplement also includes new proposals which have emerged since the plan was first approved. A number of proposals contained within the original plan are not identified for change; as such they will still be delivered as planned.

We consulted extensively with the public and other stakeholders when we developed the 2017-20 IRMP and we have reconsidered the outcomes of that consultation as we have written this supplement.

View the Draft 2019-21 Supplement to the Integrated Risk Management Plan 2017-20.

We would like to know what you think about the new and alternative proposals in this supplement compared with those we proposed in the 2017-20 IRMP.

The more informed we are by your views, the more able we are to meet your aspirations and deliver positive outcomes for the communities of Merseyside. With that in mind, we hope you will fully participate in the formal consultation process.

You can comment in the following ways:

The deadline for responses to the consultation is the 6th June 2019.
