The role of the NFCC Chair

The role of Chair is a single point of contact for the Home Office, fire professionals and partners such as the LGA, while working with the sector to make evidenced-based change. This has a positive impact on the Fire Reform agenda while demonstrating to the Home Office, fire professionals are best placed to lead and transform fire.

 The Chair maintains an independence from any particular FRA in terms of discharging the Chair role.

The CFOA Trustees has a Performance Committee to manage the performance of the NFCC Chair and to hold the Chair to account for the delivery of the NFCC annual plan. This committee consists of four people representing the NFCC plus an independent member.
