Fire & Rescue Service


The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was established on 1st April 2013, bringing together the collective skills and experience from across Scotland’s previous eight fire and rescue services.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) was established by the Police and Fire Reform Act (Scotland) 2012 (the Act) and came into being on 1st April 2013.  The Scottish Government appointed a Chair and 11 other members to serve as members of SFRS, collectively referred to as the Board. The Board provides strategic direction, support and guidance to the SFRS ensuring that it operates effectively and that the Scottish Government’s priorities are implemented.
