Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service is committed to actively promoting equality and diversity in the workplace and in the wider community. Respect for fairness, equality and diversity across our organisation is fundamental to the way in which our Fire & Rescue Service is organised and delivered. It is integral to all that we do.
The Equality Unit is part of the Human Resources Department and is based at Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service Headquarters, Lisburn. Our responsibility is to assist the organisation in meeting its equality commitments which includes the Statutory Duties set out in the Northern Ireland Act 1998. Our main functions include:
promotion of equality and diversity awareness throughout our organisation and beyond
working towards the elimination of discrimination in our workplace
