Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) inspected Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service in December 2018.

This is done as part of a national programme to inspect all 45 fire and rescue services in England.

They (HMICFRS) will produce a report about our Service that will be published on 20 June 2019. The report concentrates on three areas:

  • Effectiveness – how effective is our Service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks
  • Efficiency – How efficient is our Service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks
  • People – How well does the Service look after its staff

The HMICFRS award graded judgments for each section, based on the evidence that they find. These categories of judgement are:

  • Outstanding
  • Good
  • Requires Improvement
  • Inadequate

They also carried out a survey on what the public of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland think about our Service and another based on the thoughts of our staff – elements of both are included within the report. The report is available  to view by clicking here.
