South Lanarkshire residents have been asked to share their thoughts on how the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service can make their communities safer.

Local Senior Officer for South Lanarkshire, Alan Fairbairn, is encouraging communities to get involved and help shape future priorities for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in the area.

He said: "While we have knowledge from our day to day activities about what is most needed by people who live in South Lanarkshire, it is an important part of our community engagement strategy to enable those representing the public to offer views. 

"We received helpful input at recent events, and have taken account of that in our draft which is out for consultation.  We welcome comments from our partners and members of our communities on the proposals."

Members of the public have until Thursday, 31 August to let SFRS know what they think of the plan, which sets out fire service priorities and objectives within the South Lanarkshire Area.
