My name is Dave Walton. I am an Assistant Chief Officer with West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service.
This is my blog.
I hope that the posts which I create will be informative and promote discussion and debate. My posts reflect ideas and thinking about topical issues relating predominantly to my work with West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service and the wider fire sector in the UK. They don’t constitute policy, not should they be seen to. Great ideas are born from discussion and debate, in our geographically dispersed communities and workplaces we can’t all sit around the mess table and talk these things through – so I’m hoping that we can do it ‘virtually’.
Please comment on issues and raise your own ideas. I’ve learnt in the past that its not always possible for me to reply to each and every comment, that doesn’t mean that I’m not reading your posts. Enjoy – and communicate!
