Cleveland Fire Brigade Setting the Safeguarding Standards

By Published February 21, 2020

CLEVELAND Fire Brigade has been given top rating for their safeguarding standards.

It comes with the Brigade getting an excellent rating following an independent audit by the Teeswide Adult Safeguarding Board (TSAB) where four areas of ‘best practice’ and a further two areas of ‘good practice’ were highlighted by the independent board.

TSAB is the statutory body that sets the strategic direction for adult safeguarding.

Chief Fire Officer Ian Hayton said:  ‘We take our public responsibilities very seriously and this provides our communities with reassurance that we are dedicated to and have sound arrangements in place to protect them. Their safety is our number one priority.

“We are a public service that prides itself in improving peoples lives and local communities.  For the thousands of people that we come into contact with every year, this reiterates that we always have an individuals best interests at heart.

“It is an excellent result and a testament to our professional staff and the valued support of the central TSAB team.”
