Values and behaviours

As a Service, we are passionate about changing and saving lives, and we want to make a difference to the communities we serve.

We know that performance at work is not just about what we do (our technical competence) or what we know (our knowledge and experience), but is also about our culture (how we do things around here).

Our working culture is made up of our systems, structures, working practices and a whole host of variables – all of which centre around our shared values.

We have developed the RESPECT framework so that all staff, volunteers and Fire and Rescue Authority members understand what is expected of them:

RESPONSIBILITY

This is about:

And for leaders and managers, it also means…

EQUALITY

SUPPORT

EXCELLENCE

Code of Ethics

In May 2021, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), Local Government Association (LGA) and Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) published the Core 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.”
