Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service launch consultation for public feedback

Beds Fire and Rescue

Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service (BFRS) will launch their new Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) in April 2023 and want to hear your views.

The annual consultation process is due to start, and they want the community’s input on service priorities and proposals.

Chief Fire Officer, Andrew Hopkinson said: “This first phase consultation is part of our commitment to engage with our community. We are a public service and our community’s input, and feedback is really important to us. I’m looking forward to seeing what people have to say on how we can shape our Fire and Rescue Service to ensure that it is fit for the future.”

They want to hear your views on:

  • Their future priorities
  • What you value most about the service
  • Any concerns you have about safety and wellbeing

There will be a further consultation towards the end of the year.

Consultation closes on 31 August 2022. You can respond here.


Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
