Outside body

Local Government Association (LGA) Fire Commission


All fire and rescue authorities in England and Wales in membership of the LGA, have a place on the Commission. The Commission provides the opportunity for members to discuss issues of importance for the sector, share good practice, as well as hearing from a range of speakers from government, other sectors and the wider fire community.


The Fire Commission provides a sounding board for the Fire Services Management Committee and is an opportunity for the wider membership of the LGA to influence our priorities and activities.


The Fire Commission meets twice per year and the meetings are usually held at the Smith Square offices in Westminster.
