Our culture is very important to us all and we utilise the principles of the Core Code of Ethics to base our behaviours on. The ethical principles have been produced specifically for Fire and Rescue Services by the National Fire Chiefs Council, the Local Government Association and the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners.

We believe the Core Code will help us serve our communities and make our Service an even better place to work. It will help everyone to display and promote good behaviours. Everyone in our Service is expected to follow the Core Code. This includes those working with, or on behalf of, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The Core Code sets out five ethical principles, which provide a basis for promoting good behaviour and challenging inappropriate behaviour, as seen in our framework. The full Core Code of Ethics document is also available.
