Operational response

We work to keep you safe and our aim is to prevent fires and other emergencies occurring in the first instance. We carry out educational programmes and raise awareness through public safety campaigns and visits to homes and premises. We are also here to respond to fires and other emergencies such as road traffic collisions and flooding.

We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of operational response. We train our staff to ensure their safety and yours. As the fire and rescue service has evolved, so has the equipment and technology we use to rescue those in need.

On these pages you'll find details of our fleet of appliances, our operational response capability and more.

Special service calls and charges

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service will respond to all special service calls where human life and/or the environment are at risk. For assistance at incidents where neither is at risk, and during the non-critical phase of an incident, a charge may be made. Read our standard charges (PDF).
