Posted on behalf of Area Commander David Lockhart, Local Senior Officer for Falkirk and West Lothian, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
Dear Voluntary Sector Organisations,
Under the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012, as the appointed Local Senior Officer for the West Lothian area, I am responsible for the Local Fire and Rescue Plan for West Lothian.
Following publication of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Strategic Plan 2019-22 in October 2019, I will be reviewing and revising our Local Fire and Rescue Plan for the West Lothian area over the next few months. This review is to ensure our local priorities align to our new strategic ambitions, as well as remaining relevant to local risk.
To support the review, my team and I will be assessing a range of statistics to determine if our activities are having the desired impact and to confirm future priority areas.
Our primary focus will remain on the delivery of our core functions, but we will also consider how we may collaborate more to expand our reach and support a wider range of local needs.
As a Voluntary Sector Organisations, your views are an important part of this review and as such, I wish to invite you to participate in a short survey. The survey is available online on the SFRS Consultation Hub and will be open until 18 March 2020.
In due course, I will prepare a report on the outcome of the review. This will inform what revisions will be required in the next iteration of the Local Fire and Rescue Plan for West Lothian.
If you wish to discuss this further or wish to discuss any other fire and rescue service matter, please do not hesitate to contact me on:
