Aberdeen Council has formally given its backing to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service local plan for the area.
The plan, which was open for public consultation from July to October, was approved at a meeting of Elected Members on Tuesday, January, 16.
Local Senior Officer for Aberdeen, Bruce Farquharson said: “The Local Fire and Rescue Plan for Aberdeen sets out our priorities for addressing local needs and circumstances and I’m delighted that the Elected Members at the Communities, Housing & Infrastructure Committee have given it their full support.”
The importance of partnership working runs throughout the Aberdeen fire and rescue plan, with the sharing of information between agencies and targeting resources at areas of greatest need being the key principles that will contribute to improving the overall safety and wellbeing of our communities in Aberdeen.
In emphasising the importance of partnership working LSO Farquharson added: “The SFRS does not operate in isolation and the plan supports the crucial role of community planning in helping to deliver the ambitions of the Community Safety Partnership.”
