Values and behaviours

In May 2021, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), Local Government Association (LGA) and Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) published the Code of Ethics for Fire and Rescue Services. DWFRS is fully signed up to the code, which sets out five ethical principles as a basis for promoting good behaviour and challenging inappropriate behaviour. In short “helping every member of the Fire and Rescue Service  to act in the right way in their service to the public.”

Red Communities IconPutting our communities first

We will put the interests of the public, the community, and  service users first.

Gold Integrity IconIntegrity

We will act with integrity, including being open, honest, and consistent in everything we do.

Green Equality IconEquality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI)

We will continually recognise and promote the value of EDI, both within the Fire and Rescue Service and the wider communities in   which we serve. We will stand against all forms of discrimination, create equal opportunities, promote equality, foster good relations, and celebrate difference.

Blue Dignity IconDignity and Respect

We will treat people with dignity and respect, making decisions objectively based on evidence, without discrimination or bias.

Blue Leadership IconLeadership

We will all be positive role models, always demonstrating flexible and resilient leadership at all levels. We will be accountable for our behaviour, decisions and actions and challenge all behaviour that falls short of the highest standards.
