SFRS want Dumfries and Galloway public's views
19 June 2017
Public asked for their views during consultation on the area's fire and rescue plan.
Dumfries and Galloway residents have been asked to share their thoughts on how the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service can make communities throughout the area a safer place.
Local Senior Officer for Dumfries and Galloway, Hamish McGhie, is encouraging communities to get involved and help shape future priorities for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in the area.
He said: "While we have knowledge from our day to day activities about what is most needed by people who live in Dumfries and Galloway, it is an important part of our community engagement strategy to enable those representing the public to offer views.
"We received helpful input at recent events, and have taken account of that in our draft which is out for consultation. We welcome comments from our partners and members of our communities on the proposals."
Members of the public have until Sunday, September 3 to let SFRS know what they think of the plan, which sets out fire service priorities and objectives within the Dumfries and Galloway area.
