Long-Term Vision Consultations


The Long-Term Vision Consultation ran for six weeks and closed at midnight on Sunday 18 July 2021.

The safety needs of communities across Scotland are changing. To respond to this, we want to evolve the service we provide and at the same time further improve what we do so that the people of Scotland have the best fire and rescue service possible. 

Our document ‘SFRS – Long-Term Vision’ details the four key principles that outline how we want to work and the eight priorities we want to achieve over the next decade and beyond.  

This vision represents our future, but we remain, as always, your SFRS.  

We have launched a public consultation for communities across Scotland to offer their views on the future direction of the SFRS and how to make the country an even safer place to live, work and visit. 

Make your voice heard, take part in our consultation and help us create a safer Scotland for all. 

Below, Chief Officer Martin Blunden explains more.

What will your response help to achieve? 

The responses to this consultation will inform the final vision document which will set out our key principles and priorities we want to achieve over the next ten years.  


This consultation opened on Monday 7 June 2021 and ran for six weeks. It closed at midnight on Sunday 18 July 2021.
