North Lanarkshire residents have been asked to share their thoughts on how the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service can make communities throughout the area a safer place.
Local Senior Officer for North Lanarkshire, Iain McCusker, is encouraging communities to get involved and help shape future priorities for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in the area.
"While we have knowledge from our day to day activities about what is most needed by people who live in the North Lanarkshire, it is an important part of our community engagement strategy to enable those representing the public to offer views.
"We engaged with our stakeholders to seek their views on how well we had 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 our proposed priorities for North Lanarkshire."
Members of the public have until Wednesday, December 6 to let SFRS know what they think of the plan, which sets out fire service priorities and objectives within the North Lanarkshire area.
