On 29 March 2022, the Scottish Government published the third version of the Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland, providing the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) with strategic priorities and guidance on how to deliver progress towards improving safety in Scottish communities.

The overriding purpose of the SFRS remains working with communities and partners to improve the safety and well-being of people throughout Scotland, including preventing fires and reducing their impact on society, while maintaining the safety and mental wellbeing of SFRS staff.

The framework also highlights the increasing impact of climate change with greater risks from increased flooding and wildfires, while stressing the importance of the SFRS making a full contribution to the Scottish Government’s Net Zero emissions targets.
