In this area you can find out more about the governing body of Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, the Combined Fire Authority (CFA); organisational information; locations and contacts; constitutional and legal governance, and our commitment to equality and diversity.
As a fire and rescue service, our main responsibilities are not limited to firefighting, we also respond to a wide range of incidents, increasingly those that involve our rescue capability. As well as responding locally, we can be called to help on a national level with our Urban Search and Rescue team (USAR) and even on an international level with our International Search and Rescue team (ISAR).
We also work closely with other emergency services, in addition to our local authority partners to deliver an emergency response and protect our communities. We carry out an enforcement role to ensure that the public are safe and businesses are operating in a safe and legal manner. And while we always respond in an emergency situation, one of our priorities is to make the public aware of risks and help make them safer and avoid accidents from happening in the first place. We do this through our community safety and education programmes.
