CONSULTING
THE COMMUNITY
A Community Engagement Forum which includes a diverse cross section of Merseyside has been set up to offer feedback on how the Service meets the needs of residents.
The group was set up in November 2014 by MF&RS Diversity and Consultation Manager Wendy Kenyon and held its first meeting at the TDA in December.
For its second meeting the group paid a visit to Headquarters in March, where the members were also given a tour of the Heritage and Education Centre.
The group consists of a cross section of community

groups, partners, volunteers and residents from a range of diversity groups.
Members have met to discuss the work of our fire prevention teams and they were also given information about campaigns in the districts. Prevention staff from Wirral also attended, gave fire safety advice and highlighted targeted events.
The aim is also to engage with different community groups on the work of the Service during the year and the group will help with our approach to consultation over fire station merger proposals.
