As part of the consultation we are currently running which is looking at options for Strengthening our Fire and Rescue Service an independent company will be inviting some residents to attend Residents Forums in various towns within Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole on our behalf. If you are contacted about attending and have any concerns as to whether an approach is genuine, please contact Robert Ford, our Head of Corporate Planning on 01305 252615 or 07765897591.

Visit our consultation portal to find out more about the options being considered for the future of our service and have your say.

Could you make a difference and become a Community Volunteer or a On-Call (Retained) Firefighter?

  1. 1
    Understanding the risks to our communities
  2. 2
    Delivering activities which prevent incidents happening in the first place
  3. 3
    Protecting businesses and enforce fire safety measures where we have to

    Responding quickly and efficiently
