Operational Response
We work to keep you safe and our aim is to work with our communities to prevent fire 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. When our intervention doesn't succeed we are here to respond to fire and other emergencies from road traffic collisions to flooding.

We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of operational response. We continually train our staff to ensure not only their safety but yours. As the modern 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 much more. As you can see, we're more than just putting out fires.

Special Service Calls

It is the policy of Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service (DSFRS) to 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.
