The Service assesses its performance against each of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire Authority’s Safety Plan priorities through a range of performance metrics, with comparisons made against previous years and to national trends.
The Services uses performance reporting and data analysis to assess our effectiveness, efficiency, and financial position; and to inform decisions we make and where we target our resources.
Our performance measures help us find areas for improvement, as well as identify successes and good practice to be shared, where applicable, across public services and the fire sector.
We publish our performance reports every six months (a mid-year report in December, covering the period 1 April to 30 September; and an annual report in June, covering the period 1 April to 31 March). These reports assess how the Service has performed against key operational and corporate health measures; and are scrutinised by the Fire Authority, with further detail available through the agenda and minutes for these meetings.
