The aim of the revised Temporary Promotions Agreement Policy Version 3.0 is to support NIFRS Occupational Health, Safety, Welfare and Establishment Department (OHSW&EST) in ensuring business continuity through assuring that Service delivery is maintained by Wholetime Personnel. This revised Policy will be used to fill Short-term Vacancies for Operational/Departmental/Regional Control Centre roles from Crew Commander/Crew Commander (Control) to Area Commander/Group Commander (Control).
We are keen to obtain the views of our stakeholders in relation to this revised policy. Also, as part of our statutory equality obligations under Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998, we are particularly interested in identifying equality impacts arising from this revised policy.

Alternative formats may also be reasonably considered upon request. The closing date for receipt of comments is Friday 31 May 2013.
