Ongoing inspection programmes
Service Delivery Area Inspections (SDAI)
HMFSI's three year rolling programme of SDA inspections allow us to provide assurance that the SFRS is delivering an efficient and effective service across the entire country.
Our Thematic inspections are an examination of a particular service-wide theme, and generally seek to understand how the Service as a whole is managing the subject under scrutiny.
Other Focused Inspections
In addition of our planned programme of inspections we also on occasion carry out other focused inspections. These can be driven by a particular event or a line of enquiry based on professional judgement of the Chief Inspector. Inspections can also be carried out at the direction of Scottish Ministers.
