Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service works hard to protect its local communities, often working with partners to reduce the risk of fire wherever possible.
In addition to tackling fires and helping people involved in road traffic collisions, we will respond when all manner of emergencies arise – we have specialist teams providing rope, water and animal rescue capability, we can assist with flooding incidents, and we can be called upon to help other agencies.
However, we’re not just about providing a 24/7 emergency response. We place a great deal of focus on Prevention, aiming to reduce the risk of incidents happening in the first place, and working closely with partners to assist the most vulnerable in our society.
We also have a Protection department, which ensures that fire safety legislation is being adhered to by businesses and commercial premises.
