What does the Community Safety Plan do?
Our Community Safety Plan sets out the vision, aims and values that provide direction for us to deliver services. It shows how we plan to keep as you safe as we can and, more importantly, what you can do to help make yourself safer in your home. It contains our Integrated Risk Management Plan.
The way in which we keep you safe is shown in the sections below:
What is Integrated Risk Management Planning?
It is an assessment of all risks to life and injury to the community resulting in a long-term plan to make us more responsive to your needs.
This means targeting our resources so that we can prevent incidents from happening whilst also making sure they are in the right location.
This will ensure our plans are tailored to meet your local needs. An Integrated Risk Management Plan will save more lives, reduce injuries and will protect property and the environment. It takes into account the commercial, economic, environmental and heritage concerns within Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole and will mean a safer community.
Our local Integrated Risk Management Plan looks at our priorities and , based on intelligence and data about the potential risks in your particular community and the risks to specific groups and individuals, allows resources to be deployed where there is greatest need. This is very complex because all areas and people are different so this needs to be a flexible and tailored approach.
The work is being carried out in five steps:
- Identify existing and potential risk to the community
- Evaluate the effectiveness of current preventative, protective, and response arrangements.
- Identify opportunities for improvement and determine policies and standards for prevention and response.
- Determine resource requirements to meet these policies and standards.
- Include arrangements for implementation, monitoring and review.
You, All our stakeholders, business, industry and our staff will be consulted on the Community Safety Plan and when we propose any changes to who we do things.
Your views will be taken into account.
The following are our five strategic aims and too deliver our Strategic Aims we have three organisational strategies.
Reducing risk by educating our communities to prevent fires and other incidents occurring.
Ensuring that buildings are well regulated and can offer a safe means of escape in the case of fire.
Ensuring that our response delivers a swift and professional service in an emergency.
Ensuring a safe and competent workforce who are well managed and effective.
Maximising the value we get from the resources we use and reducing the impact on the environment.
Key Organisational Strategies
We have three key organisational strategies. The Community Safety Strategy plays a vital part in bringing our vision alive and sets out in more detail our three first strategic aims – Prevention, Protection and Response. It outlines the activities that we will undertake in order of priority. The remaining two strategies: People Strategy and Resources Strategy support the effective delivery of the Community Safety Strategy and play an essential part in enabling our services to be delivered.
