Authority responsibilities

The Fire Authority’s statutory core functions, as laid down in the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004, are to:

DWFRA has a statutory duty to provide the financial and other resources necessary to ensure an efficient and effective service. To this end, the Members set an annual budget after considering professional advice on the level of resources required.

In addition to overseeing the Service’s finances, DWFRA considers any new policy initiatives; these are often required or suggested by national government but can be of a more local nature.

Members also have a legal duty to monitor the operational performance of the FRS and consider best practice, and this is done through workstreams and committees, as well as the full Fire Authority.
