-  Develop the sharing of best practice from across the North West and beyond to influence future business.

-  Encourage the provision of sustainable and increasingly efficient prevention, protection and intervention services to reduce overall risk.

-  Influence the implementation of value led strategies on a localised basis.

-  Provide the platform for continuing collaboration between North West Fire Rescue Service’s to promote increasing value in all aspects of service delivery.

-  Lobby key internal and external partners to improve fire and rescue service policies and processes.

-  To lead continuous improvement through delivery of a sector led, peer reviewed approach.


Each Authority appoints three Elected Members to sit on the Forum which consists of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Leader of the Opposition. Cumbria County Council appoints just two Elected Members which include Portfolio Holder and Vice Portfolio Holder for Community Safety and Local Services.
