Fire Authority

The Combined Fire Authority

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority came into being in April 1996 when local government re-organisation created a Combined Fire Authority (CFA) representing the areas of North Yorkshire County Council and the City of York Council.

Functions of the Fire Authority

The duties and powers of the new Combined Fire Authority are contained within the Fire and Rescue Services Act, 2004. This prescribes the framework within which all fire authorities must operate. See also Regulatory Responsibilities.

The Fire Authority has specific responsibilities in directing and monitoring the role of the Fire Service. 

Members of the Fire Authority

Members of the Fire Authority are elected from each of the two authorities. The number of members for each authority is determined by the size of the electoral representation within each authority. The proportional representation is shown below:

North Yorkshire County Council: 12 Seats
City of York Council: 4 Seats
