Our Fire and Rescue Service (White Paper) 2003

The White Paper Our Fire and Rescue Service - presented to Parliament in June 2003 - responded to the Independent Review of the Fire Service by Professor Sir George Bain which called for a new approach by the Service to reduce fires and save more lives. It set out the vision for the Fire and Rescue Service in England and Wales and the strategy for achieving that vision.

Note: The following publication was issued by our former department, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM). ODPM became Communities and Local Government on 5 May 2006 - all references in the text to ODPM now refer to Communities and Local Government.
