Local Government Association Fire Services Management Committee

Description

The Local Government Association Fire Services Management Committee represents the views and concerns of the fire community, ensuring that local circumstances have a voice in the national context.   The Committee leads on behalf of the LGA on the future direction of the fire and rescue service, improvement within the sector and on all other day-to-day issues (e.g. technical or operational matters) affecting fire authorities.  The Committee’s objectives are to:

·         Make the case for risk-based funding of the fire and rescue service;

·         Work to transform service delivery, including greater collaboration across blue-light services;

·         Influence the proposed governance changes to retain the independence of the fire and rescue service; and

·         Support the development of the role of firefighters for the future

Appointments to the Committee are made directly by the LGA.
