Dear Parish and Town Councils,

I’m writing to let you know that the Resourcing to Risk public consultation is now live and will stay open until 10 March 2024. You can find all the background material on the consultation website, which is www.warwickshire.gov.uk/ask. As well as information about the need for change, it has more detail on the proposed model, on-call availability data and response times.

Our latest news release can be found here Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Resourcing to Risk Consultation Opens – Warwickshire County Council

You can also find more information on resourcing to risk on our website https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/warwickshire-fire-rescue-service/resourcing-risk

Everyone’s views matter.

We would like to promote the consultation to all our stakeholders, which includes the public, our partners, suppliers, businesses, town and parish councils, etc. So please help up spread the message and share this in your newsletters, on social media and any other communication channels you use. Would you please be able to keep promoting the consultation until March 2024 ?

It is very important to us that everyone has a chance to give us their feedback. We would like to encourage members of the public, who live or work in Warwickshire, to take time to read all the information on the consultation website, and complete the online survey, which includes an opportunity to give general feedback or comments as well as answering the fixed questions.

Once the survey closes, we’ll collate all the feedback and use it to inform our future delivery approach.

Just a reminder, that you can also email us on WFRSR2R@warwickshire.gov.uk     if you have any questions about the consultation.

Information sessions

We are holding five events in the new year – one each in Stratford, Kenilworth, Atherstone, Bedworth and Southam – to give the public an opportunity to learn more about the proposals. Places at the events must be booked and tickets went live last week  on our Eventbrite page.  Again, it would be fantastic if you could help promote these sessions.

The sessions are as follows:

Stratford on Wednesday 17th Jan 24 at 6.30pm

Kenilworth on Wednesday 24th Jan 24 at 6.30pm

Bedworth on Monday 29th Jan 24 at 6.30pm

Atherstone on Thursday 8th Feb 24 at 6.30pm

Southam on Tuesday 27th Feb 24 at 6.30pm

Would you be able to promote the consultation and information sessions in the local community please?

The proposal is changing the way we respond to emergencies and provide fire cover in Warwickshire. It is important to ensure that our residents are fully aware of the proposal and have an opportunity to voice their views and share concerns.

Any help promoting it would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,


Gosia Zielinska
