Nottingham City Council administers the meetings of the Nottinghamshire and City of Nottingham Fire and Rescue Authority. The Authority is responsible for ensuring that the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has the people, equipment and training it needs to carry out its duties for fire prevention, fire safety, firefighting and rescue, road traffic collision extrication and rescue, and other emergency rescue activities such as responding to flooding or terrorism incidents.
The Authority is a ‘Combined Fire Authority’ (CFA), as it comprises six councillors from Nottingham City Council and twelve councillors from Nottinghamshire County Council. The Authority makes decisions on key matters such as strategy, policy and the budget. There are also several sub-committees reporting to the full Authority:
· Appointments Committee
· Community Safety Committee
· Finance and Resources Committee
· Human Resources Committee
· Personnel Committee
· Policy and Strategy Committee
The Finance and Resources Sub-Committee is made up of five councillors, including the Vice Chair of the Authority. It usually meets four times each year and its meetings are open to the public.
If you would like to attend a meeting and require British Sign Language interpretation, please contact the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters at least two weeks in advance of the meeting either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by text to 0115 824 0400.
