We publish our performance reports every six months (a mid-year report in December, covering the period 1 April to 30 September; and an end-of-year report in June, covering the period 1st April to 31st March). These reports are taken to the Fire Authority, are available through the agenda and minutes for these meetings, and focus on various critical areas, including and beyond our operational activity.
For example, we report on our response standard performance, availability, prevention and protection performance, sickness absence, policy and planning performance, and a number of other crucial areas.
The progress of our HFRS and IWFRS Joint Action Plan for Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) was reported into our HFRA Standards and Governance Committee and the Isle of Wight Corporate Scrutiny Committee, these action plans are now completed with close reports approved on the 23rd and 7th July 2020, respectively.
For information on the findings from HMICFRS’s inspection of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service’s response to Covid-19, please see the Inspectorate’s (January 2021) report.
