Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service: Causes of concern revisit letter
In March and April 2021, we inspected Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (FRS). During that inspection, we identified three causes of concern:
- The service hasn’t done enough since the last inspection to develop prevention activity that prioritises those most at risk of fire.
- The service hasn’t done enough since the last inspection to identify its highest-risk premises to inform its risk-based inspection programme.
- The service isn’t taking a proportionate approach to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace.
Warwickshire FRS submitted an action plan setting out how it would address the areas of concern and the recommendations against it.
In February 2022, and between 15 and 16 November 2022, we revisited Warwickshire FRS to review progress against the action plan.
This letter provides an update on our findings.
