HMICFRS has said that the London Fire Brigade “requires improvement”. How will you address the concerns raised by HMICFRS in its recent inspection of the Brigade?

The results of the London Fire Brigade’s HMICFRS inspection were simply not good enough and it is important that changes are made to address the issues raised as quickly as possible.

The London Fire Commissioner is compiling an action plan to address the concerns raised by HMICFRS. This is due to report back to the Inspectorate at the end of February 2020 and will also be provided to the London Assembly Fire, Resilience and Emergency Planning Committee. My team and I will work with the Commissioner to ensure the action plan addresses the full scale and range of the issue facing the Brigade.
