Community Safety
We are here to keep you safe when you're at work, on holiday, travelling along our network of roads or in your home. We provide community safety services to help prevent incidents from occurring, protect the communities we serve and if all the preventative measures fail we are available to respond 24/7 to emergency incidents. We also work hard to ensure we minimise the wider impact on society of emergency incidents.

We work with our partner agencies such as the Police, Social Services or third sector charity organisations to ensure you have access to and are provided with the appropriate information that could help you reduce the risk of an emergency and minimise injury should one occur.

We provide a range of services including:

  • Schools educational visits
  • Road traffic collision educational programmes for all ages
  • Youth inclusion programmes
  • Arson reduction programmes
  • General public safety campaigns and advice
  • Targeted home safety visits to those that need us the most
  • Working to reduce the amount of false alarm calls

We also work to ensure that non-domestic buildings in which people work, visit and enjoy leisure time are provided with facilities that will ensure a safe means of escape in the event of a fire starting. As with all our preventative activities we work with those premises perceived to present the greatest risk to the community. We have a responsibility to effectively enforce the law so that members of the public and local employees are protected from the risk of death and injury caused by fire.
