North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service: Causes of concern revisit letter
Between March and May 2022, we inspected North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) and identified two causes of concern:
- The service doesn’t have in place robust processes to ensure transformation activities provide efficiency and effectiveness.
- The service doesn’t have in place adequate workforce planning processes. This means that areas such as safety-critical training, succession planning, absence and work-time management don’t support its current and future integrated risk management plan.
North Yorkshire FRS submitted an action plan setting out how it would address the areas of concern and the recommendations.
Between 30 January and 1 February 2023, we revisited to review progress against the action plan and the arrangements for overseeing it.
This letter provides an update on our findings.
