We are increasingly being asked for comparative data in relation to the types of risk to which fire authorities and services are exposed. These organisations in particular are keen to understand, ‘how do we compare?’ and ‘are we missing any significant risks?’ We have therefore undertaken an analysis of the corporate risk registers across 15 fire authorities to identify key risk themes.
The analysis provides information to help fire authorities, audit committees and fire services review and challenge their own risk profiles and to help with ongoing risk identification and horizon scanning. It includes factors such as the changing demand and workforce requirements, emerging risks as a result of the continual budget reductions, need for more collaboration and the ever increasing use of technology and shared services.
This will be a useful sense check for fire authorities and services to utilise when considering their risks; an activity that is particularly beneficial during times of change.
