Creating Safe and Secure Communities
Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service contributes towards creating a safe and secure community within the county. The organisation strives, with our partners, to educate the people of Cumbria to help prevent fire and road related deaths and injuries. This will be achieved through identifying and working particularly with those groups who are most at risk ensuring that appropriate safety measures are in place. When called to an emergency the fire and rescue service will utilise best operational practice to minimise injury and loss. Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service is an integral part of the Safer and Stronger Communities Directorate of Cumbria County Council.
