Dundee City Council has formally given its backing to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service local plan for the area.
The plan, which was open for public consultation from July to September, was approved at a meeting of Elected Members at the Community Safety and Public Protection Committee on Monday, October 30.
Local Senior Officer for Dundee, Colin Grieve said: “The Local Fire and Rescue Plan for Dundee sets out our priorities for addressing local needs and circumstances and I’m delighted that the Elected Members at the Community Safety and Public Protection Committee have given it their full support.”
The importance of partnership working runs throughout the Dundee fire and rescue plan, with the sharing of information between agencies and targeting resources at areas of greatest need being the key principles that will contribute to improving the overall safety and wellbeing of our communities in Dundee.
In emphasising the importance of partnership working LSO Grieve added: “The SFRS does not operate in isolation and the plan supports the crucial role of community planning in helping to deliver the ambitions of the Dundee Partnership through the City Plan for Dundee.”
