The considerable expertise of members within the Fire Sector Federation is of a great value both to those within the fire sector and the wider community. Networking allows that expertise and knowledge to be utilised to inform technical decisions and professionally inform decision makers.
The Directors with their broad responsibilities work together with members having a particular interest or expertise to discuss and develop policy and actions and to produce industry guidance for wider dissemination, as necessary.
FSF members are free to join in any activity in which they have an interest.
The Federation also maintains a close link to Parliamentarians by supporting the Honorary Secretary of All-Party Parliamentary Fire Safety and Rescue Group. The APPFSRG is one of a number of informal cross-party interest groups in Parliament which consider matters important to Members of Parliament and Peers.
Internationally the Federation is networked through CTIF the International Association of Fire and Rescue Services to many other fire related organisations and operates as the UK National Committee. The UK was a founder member of CTIF in 1900 and has maintained an important role over the intervening decades. Read More about CTIF
