The Association of Local Authority Risk Managers (ALARM) recommend that all corporate bodies should assess business risks and put in place control measures to reduce or eliminate risks via a published Risk Register.
'Corporate risk' means those risks that would seriously affect the Authority's ability to achieve its objectives. Both the Fire and Rescue Authority and Fire and Rescue Service maintain comprehensive risk registers that are submitted to the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis.
The Authority's Operational Plan (Integrated Risk Management Plan), which is primarily focused on the delivery of the operational elements of the Fire and Rescue Service sits alongside the Strategic Plan.
