The Fire Service are working on ensuring the continued sustainability with regards to the provision of specialist fire investigation skills and capabilities into the future.
Consequently they are acting to collect evidence to help and understand the issues around recruiting and retaining F.S.O.
The Fire Service have developed a survey to provide further information.
The Survey has been developed with consultation with the Union, however it is fair to say the Union does not believe it adequately explore all relevant issues.
However, it is a start, and is better than the vacuum there is at present.
Consequently, the Union urges all affected members to honestly and thoroughly complete the Survey. We will have full access to the outcome.
The Survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SLNC7QC
