Chief Fire Officer's Message

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  

I hope you will find it both interesting and informative and, if you are searching for specific information, you are able to find it easily and quickly. 

Our commitment to the safety of the public is all encompassing and this drives the work of everyone in Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service.  

I would also like to think that you will be impressed by the broad range of work we undertake to improve the lives of the communities that we serve, and that this range of work is adequately reflected on our website. 

So, enjoy the site but please remember that at its very heart this website is aiming to promote a serious fire safety message which we want you to take away with you. 

Remember your safety matters to us!
