Five year strategy - 2015 to 2020
We have made significant progress in recent years on improving the safety of residents and businesses across Cheshire, Halton and Warrington.
Our previous four-year strategy enabled Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to deliver savings of nearly £5 million between 2011 and 2015, while still maintaining the overall downward trend in incidents and emergencies.
The challenge over the next five years will be even harder as it becomes more difficult to maintain improvements in community safety at the same time as the need to make savings increases.
