Original consultation

We want your views on proposals to include flooding and water rescue incidents in the Fire and Rescue Authorities’ statutory duty in Wales.

Consultation description

We are consulting on a proposal to extend Fire and Rescue Authorities’ (FRAs) duties so that flooding and water rescue incidents are included.

As well as fighting fires and promoting fire safety, FRAs are required by law to respond to road traffic accidents and certain other incidents, such as chemical spills or rescuing people from collapsed buildings. However, there is currently no statutory duty for flooding or other water-related incidents.
