Integrated Risk Management Plans (IRMP)

It is a requirement under the Fire and Rescue National Framework that each Fire and Rescue Authority must produce an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP).  The IRMP should be easily accessible and publicly available.  Each plan must reflect all foreseeable fire and rescue related risks that could affect their communities, whether they are local, cross-border, multi-authority and/or national in nature; set out its management strategy; reflect effective consultation throughout its development with the community, its workforce & partners, and cover at least a three-year timespan.  Most Fire and Rescue Authority will review and update their IRMP on an annual basis.
