Your Opinion is important to Hampshire Fire and Rescue who are planning to organise their fire services in a different way. This BSL focus group is an informal group conversation. There will be tea and cake, and an interpreter. We will all talk about the changes that the Fire Service is hoping to make. We will also talk about how the Fire Service can best support you, so that everyone stays safe from fire. A uniformed Fire Officer will be there to answer any questions and give advice.
