The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) are developing a Community Asset Register (CAR) to enhance emergency response to incidents. The CAR will involve third sector organisations working alongside the emergency services to help ensure the best possible conclusion to an incident.
Those who live in rural or isolated areas, have specialist skills and have their own transport are encouraged to register to become a member of CAR.
There is a detailed process to become a member of CAR but there will be support and advice throughout from SFRS, who will take applicants through the process step-by-step and provide explanations as they proceed. It should be noted at this early stage that SFRS reserves the right to refuse an application to join the CAR.
To become a member, or for further information, contact SFRS by email: SFRS.CommunityAssetRegister@firescotland.gov.uk
