Had the privilege of spending some time 1:1 with Russell Pearson the Chief Fire Officer of the Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. He has been in post since 2007 and has a record of innovation. In a previous role he introduced an award winning mobile data system now in use nationally in every fire engine. He showers you will impressive and valuable analytical statistics which demonstrate his continual innovation and commercial approach to running the Service. But plenty of challenges ahead with more budget cuts to come.
