The strategic direction, performance and scrutiny of NIFRS is overseen by the NIFRS Board, a body which was established under The Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006. It is a non-departmental public body, with the Department of Health (DoH) as its sponsoring Department.
The NIFRS Board is appointed by the Health Minister and comprises a non-executive Chairperson and 10 non-executive Members, 4 of whom are District Councillors and the remainder are Lay Members. The Chief Fire & Rescue Officer is also a member of the NIFRS Board.
The NIFRS Board normally meets quarterly in the Boardroom at NIFRS Headquarters, 1 Seymour Street, Lisburn and these meetings are open to the public.
Minutes of any Board Meetings will be published once approved.
