The fire and rescue service is shaking off its outdated image in a major drive to change the public's perception of firefighters, a new report outlines today. The report argues that while the role of firefighters has changed dramatically in the last few years, many potential recruits are deterred by outdated perceptions of the job. As the number of fires has more than halved over the past decade, the 21st century firefighter's role has focused on community safety and harm prevention, with home safety visits - expanded to become safe and well visits in several areas - going beyond fire risk to address social care issues such as falls prevention, or alcohol use. The fire service is increasingly working in tandem with health partners, other emergency services and councils on issues such as modern slavery and co-responding with the ambulance service.
