ACTIVE Solutions Europe Ltd has announced their Information Management Event, to be held on July 6. The event will include an exclusive presentation on innovative approaches to community fire safety by Dorset Fire and Rescue Service.

The presentation from Dorset FRS will discuss how they have made efficiency and cost savings, as well as reducing fire risk across Dorset.

Bob Ford, Head of Corporate Planning at Dorset FRS discusses how PINPOINT has revolutionised Community Fire Safety activities resulting in the following benefits:

• Estimated cost savings of £325,000 per year
• 11% reduction in accidental dwelling fires
• Admin time reduced by 38 hours per week
• Efficiency savings of 2 hours per watch per day.

This approach has been published as a Notable Practice Case Study by CFOA. According to ACTIVE Solutions, Dorset FRS are now able to achieve more with less whilst improving public safety by targeting the most high risk sections of the community and making the substantial savings required following the spending review.
