Stirling residents have been asked to share their thoughts on how the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service can make communities throughout the area safer place for residents and visitors alike.
Local Senior Officer for Stirling, Roddie Keith, is encouraging communities to get involved and help shape future priorities for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in the area.
He said: "We have gained a great deal of experience from our day to day activities, working with partners across the area, about what is most needed by people who live in the Stirling Local Authority Area. However, it is an important part of our community engagement strategy to enable those living within our communities to offer their views and ensure that we have captured all of their expectations and concerns about the future.
"We have already engaged with our key stakeholders to seek their views on how well we have been performing against our existing priorities, and have taken account of that in our draft plan which is now out for consultation. We welcome comments from our partners and members of our communities on this draft plan and our proposed priorities for Stirling."
Members of the public have until Monday, December 22 to let SFRS know what they think of the plan, which sets out fire service priorities and objectives within the Stirling area.
