Staff Briefing

24 April 2013 - Stratford


Key messages

Key Messages

Tough times ahead

Need to think radically different

We are not immune

We are in this as a service together


Current financial medium term position

Current Financial/Medium Term Position


The future funding landscape

The Future Funding Landscape

Why do the Fire Service have to make savings?

  • Reduction of £92 million over 4 years from a base budget of £320 million to:

    - Offset declines in government funding

    • Fund inflation and spending pressures

      The only way to reduce the level of savings is to:

    • Reduce demand for our services

    • More Houses to generate more council tax

    • Business growth to generate more business rates

    • Charge more via fees or council tax


What s next for the fire service

What’s next for the Fire Service?

  • Cannot continue ‘as is’

  • Potential of £6 million reduction in the fire service budget by 2018

  • This means by 2018 we will have 30% less money to spend than now

  • This equates to 40% of the workforce!

  • We will need to identify new ways of working

  • No single measure will work to meet the gap

  • Alliances/shared services/collaboration is still very much on the agenda


Future thinking

Future Thinking

Redesign the service so we deliver the most effective emergency response possible

Improve the outcomes we deliver where we can but do not ‘over perform’

Identify and agree what it is we can’t do and communicate it to the community

Save money!
