Have Your Say on Frome’s Fire & Rescue Service

List of venues for fire service consultations

The fire and rescue authority that serves the Frome area is seeking residents’ views on proposed changes to the service. Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service have laid out six options for changes to the service across the 2 counties.

Public drop-in sessions have been planned in 23 locations, including Frome. Frome residents are invited to come along to Frome Library from 10am-2pm on Thursday 29 August to find out more and ask questions about the future of the service and the proposed options.

There is also an online questionnaire you can fill out at any time before 22 September.

Some options propose that one of Frome’s two fire engines is on-call at night only. The consultation document that is available to download lays out the reasoning and statistics around the proposals, which the service says will help match the resources available to the risks of each community.

The final decision will be made by the Fire Authority in November 2019, with changes taking effect from 2020.
