West Midlands Fire Service Governance Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

We are asking for your views on how the West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) should be run in the future.

There are a number of reasons for proposed changes to this vital emergency service, including central government’s public service reform and devolution agendas. Public services across the region have already begun to change and this will continue as West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) progresses.

Last year the WMFS commissioned an independent review of its current governance, considering several models, and identified the WMCA as the best possible future option. We are now consulting on the ‘Scheme’ document which describes the proposed governance structure. 

This consultation will run from 11 January to 8 March.

There is a short survey and further information on the West Midlands Combined Authority website and we would welcome your feedback and any additional comments that you would like to make.
