Working together: how health, social care and fire and rescue services can increase their reach, scale and impact through joint working
This document showcases work by the fire and rescue services to help reduce demand for other services through prevention, including health and social care. Underlying risk factors that ultimately result in fires, such as smoking and alcohol consumption, also have a strong impact on health. Fire and rescue services are applying the principles of early intervention and prevention, to these health-related risk factors, resulting in a reduced demand for the services of others, whilst also continuing to reduce demand for fire and rescue.
