South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue
Our mission is ‘Making South Yorkshire Safer and Stronger’ and our work to achieve this extends to far more than fighting fires.
Our firefighters are supported by teams of support staff who are skilled to provide a wide range of specialist services. This includes our community safety work and our responsibilities to enforce business fire safety laws. We also work with a network of volunteers to further extend the reach of our prevention work.
We need your help. More than 50 people have died in house fires in South Yorkshire since 2011. Most could have been prevented. Many house fire victims were already known to at least one other agency. Sadly in most cases South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue were not. The best way to support our work is to look out for fire hazards and to sign up to become one of our Safe & Well partners.
