Data Management Framework

Everyone in the fire and rescue service shares responsibility for good data management. This Data Management Framework, which has been written by subject-matter experts from across the sector, outlines good practice and is designed to help fire and rescue services to implement the Data Management Fire Standard, comply with good data management practice and, where appropriate, legal obligations. Its audience is everyone working within a fire and rescue service, not only those in data-related roles.

The framework includes guidance on data management, data competencies, associated resources, a set of document templates, and a reference library of established free national and regional data sets that a fire and rescue service might find useful.
