Minister for Community Safety Ash Regan will host the event, which is open to members of the public and key stakeholders, at Golden Jubilee Hotel and Conference Centre in Clydebank.
Dr Kirsty Darwent, Chair of the SFRS Board and Ross Haggart, Interim Chief Officer will present a performance report to the Minister who will then ask questions before opening to the floor.
Ms Regan said: “I greatly value the responsibility of holding what is now the ninth Annual Performance Review of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, and am delighted that we can now meet in person and offer a hybrid attendance option.
“The Annual Performance Review provides an opportunity for us to both reflect on performance and also to give our thanks for all that SFRS have done within the reporting year. The 21/22 reporting year still covers a time of COVID restrictions but I believe this year we will be able to discuss wider issues while acknowledging the huge contribution that everyone at the SFRS made during the most challenging of times.
“The Review and Annual Report document allows Government and the public to look at the Service’s performance and the work that has been done over the past year. For the final time, due to the new Fire Framework 2022 published earlier this year, we will consider performance against the Scottish Government Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2016, which sets out Scottish Ministers’ ambitions and priorities for the SFRS, and the strategic priorities that represent our high-level ambition for what we want from a world leading, modern, skilled and dynamic fire and rescue service.”
The SFRS Annual Performance Review takes place on Tuesday, September 27 from 10am until 12.30pm at the Agamemnon Suite, Golden Jubilee Hotel and Conference Centre in Clydebank.
