"We are here to make life safer for everyone in Hampshire.
"With the support of our Fire and Rescue Authority, we will always ensure we are there when emergencies happen. We will also work hard with our communities to educate people to take the right action to reduce the risk of fires and other incidents happening.
"Over the last decade we have successfully driven down the number of fires to half the level of 10 years ago. As a modern fire and rescue service we aim to make ourselves even more relevant to the lives of people in Hampshire as we move towards 2020 and beyond.
"This is about more than just fire. We continue to support our ambulance colleagues through our medical co-responding work. We are also passionate about collaborating and working ever more closely with our partners to further enhance the safety of the county.
"Our aim is to be the best fire and rescue service in the country. This document clearly sets out our vision to work smarter, be more efficient, and to make life safer for everyone in Hampshire.
"Welcome to the next chapter in our continuing story - a forward-thinking, nationally recognised organisation working tirelessly to provide an exceptional service to our communities."
The Chief Officer and Chairman of the Authority
