Generic risk assessment (GRA) 5.6 Public order - violence and aggression against fire and rescue personnel examines the significant hazards and control measures relating to threatened or actual:

  • Offensive behaviour

  • Abusive behaviour

  • Violence

  • A combination of all three towards fire and rescue personnel

Planned and/or spontaneous public order events are not separate types of incidents for the Fire and Rescue Authority, but it do potentially create a hostile working environment and additional hazards when fire and rescue personnel are working in these situations.

This generic risk assessment is focussed on:

  • Identified areas for potential violence and aggression towards fire and rescue personnel

  • Spontaneous events where fire and rescue personnel are already dealing with an incident and are subject, without warning, to violence and aggression. These can be isolated or a series of related or unrelated events over a wider area.
