Workforce and Culture
The RBFRS Vision is to work together as One Team for the communities we serve. In order to fulfil our vision it is vital that our staff work in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. We continue to drive towards creating a Service that reflects the communities it serves, although we recognise that there is more work required to achieve this goal.
The Service has a well-developed Health and Wellbeing Action plan and we have made a commitment to improve the mental health of every employee and volunteer across the Service. We continue to deliver a range of activities in support of this aim:
- Tackling mental health stigma.
- Improving workplace wellbeing.
- Building resilience.
- Improving access to information.
- Improving pathways to support.
The safety of our workforce remains a priority for the Service and firefighter safety is regularly reviewed at a senior level, as part of the Corporate Risk Register.
