Fire and rescue services

In July 2017, HMICFRS extended its remit to include inspections of England’s fire and rescue service. We now assess and report on the efficiency, effectiveness and people of the 44 fire and rescue services in England.

To find our methodology, judgment criteria and other information about these inspections, please see the How we inspect section.

The latest published fire and rescue service assessments are available on the overall assessment page.
