Fire & Rescue Services Champion Good practice

28 August 2020

Business Champions are at the heart of the Driving for Better Business programme. They are employers that are prepared to step forward to champion good practice in work related road safety by sharing their own stories – the challenges they faced, how they met those challenges, and the benefits they’ve seen as a result.

Driving for Better Business features Fire & Rescue Service Champions from Kent and North Yorkshire. 

Kent Fire & Rescue showed:

  • A 5% year on year reduction on insurance and maintenance costs
  • Capital cost reduction through improved fleet utilisation
  • Over 8,000 litres of fuel and 21,000kg of CO2 saved.

North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service key benefits were:

  • Accident reduction - collisions down 71% year on year
  • 8 x RoSPA Gold Awards for Occupational Health & Safety
  • Reduced business mileage

Access these full case studies and others to see how they have greatly reduced their costs, while continuing to ensure driver safety.
