Organisational Change in Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service; exploring the role of Leadership and Culture

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Over the past decade there has been a strategic shift in the role of the UK Fire and Rescue Services, in particular an increase in focus on community safety. This paper concentrates on the case of Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, where their community safety work has moved away from fire safety to a holistic model of community safety. In this paper, I share some preliminary findings into the investigation of the organisational changes. Drawing on data collected from qualitative methods, I explore the influence of leadership and culture on the changes that have occurred.
