Operational Assessment and Fire Peer Challenge Toolkit

Operational Assessment and Fire Peer Challenge Toolkit

Since 2009, the Local Government Association (LGA), in partnership with tne National Fire Chiefs Council. has successfully delivered peer challenge to all 46 Fire and Rescue Services throughout the UK, taking as a starting point self assessments carried out using the Operational Assessment and Fire Peer Challenge (OpA) toolkit.

This document presents the revised Operational Assessment and Fire Peer Challenge process. This will remain the ‘industry standard’ improvement tool to provide elected members on fire
authorities and chief officers with information that their operational service delivery is efficient, effective and robust, as well as providing a view on organisational effectiveness.
