The fire services in the United Kingdom operate under separate legislative and administrative arrangements in England and Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. Emergency cover is provided by over fifty fire and rescue services (FRS), which is the term used in modern legislation and by government departments. Many FRS were previously known as brigades or county fire services, but almost all now use the standard terminology. They are distinct from and governed by a fire authority, which is the legislative, public and administrative body, made up of civilians (usually members of elected local or regional bodies). Fire authorities in England and Wales (and formerly Scotland), and therefore fire and rescue services, receive a large proportion of their funding through a share of Council Tax. Sc

  • El servicio de bomberos en el Reino Unido opera bajo acuerdos legislativos y administrativos independientes en Inglaterra, Irlanda del Norte, Escocia y Gales. Los servicios de bomberos han sufrido cambios significativos desde comienzos del siglo XXI, un proceso propulsado por la devolución de los poderes del gobierno central, nueva legislación y un cambio en los procedimientos operacionales en vistas de los ataques y amenazas terroristas. El catalizador del cambio llegó con la publicación en 2002 de una investigación del servicio de bomberos en el Reino Unido por el Profesor Sir George Bain. Su informe, el Investigación Independiente del Servicio de Bomberos, dio paso a rápidos cambios en los servicios de bomberos y rescate. Los términos de referencia de Bain eran descritos de tal forma: Considerando el papel cambiante y en desarrollo del Servicio de Bomberos en el Reino Unido, para indagar sobre ello y hacer recomendaciones en la futura organización y dirección del Serivicio de Bomberos... En el prólogo al artículo, Bain afirmaba que se llevaba a cabo independiente y objetivamente: ...la investigación se juntó con la cooperación del Gobierno, las organizaciones de los patrones y las autoridades de bomberos en Inglaterra y Gales, Escocia e Irlanda del Norte."

  • The fire services in the United Kingdom operate under separate legislative and administrative arrangements in England and Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. Emergency cover is provided by over fifty fire and rescue services (FRS), which is the term used in modern legislation and by government departments. Many FRS were previously known as brigades or county fire services, but almost all now use the standard terminology. They are distinct from and governed by a fire authority, which is the legislative, public and administrative body, made up of civilians (usually members of elected local or regional bodies). Fire authorities in England and Wales (and formerly Scotland), and therefore fire and rescue services, receive a large proportion of their funding through a share of Council Tax. Scotland and Northern Ireland have centralised fire and rescue services, and so their authorities are effectively committees of the devolved parliaments. The total budget for fire services in 2014-15 was £2.9 billion. Central government maintains national standards and a body of independent advisers through the Chief Fire and Rescue Adviser, which was created in 2007, replacing Her Majesty's Fire Services Inspectorate. The devolved government in Scotland has a similar agency, HMFSI Scotland. Firefighters in the United Kingdom are allowed to join unions, the main one being the Fire Brigades Union, while chief fire officers (the heads of the various FRS) are members of the Chief Fire Officers Association, which has some role in national co-ordination. The fire services have undergone significant changes since the beginning of the 21st century, a process that has been propelled by a devolution of central government powers, new legislation and a change to operational procedures in the light of terrorism attacks and threats.
