Fire & Rescue Activity Framework
To help categorise the areas requiring Fire Standards and the guidance that is likely to underpin them, an Activity Framework has been developed. In doing this we were able to capture all the activities performed by fire and rescue services irrespective of their governance model, budget or location and who provides those functions (for example, services that are part of a local authority). The principles of this approach are founded on the experience gained through the National Operational Guidance Programme (NOGP). The Activity Framework is intended to:
- provide a complete road map so we can see where the NFCC and FSB are going;
- help us avoid duplication and overlap which may result in conflicting guidance if developed in isolation; and,
- be easy to navigate for all audiences.
The Activity Framework covers all fire and rescue services’ functions and business activities with the top-level activities shown below. You can then expands these into multiple levels which will then lead you to any Fire Standards relating to the activity you choose.
