Strategic Intent Document
In 2008/9 GMFRS's Management Team embarked on an extensive staff consultation exercise which recognised the full implications of the global financial crisis, as well as making a commitment to staff to engage them in designing the Fire and Rescue Service of the future, in a manner not previously attempted.
