The fire and rescue service is an integral part of keeping our communities safe and secure. Even with greatly reduced financial resources, the sector continues to deliver robust, professional and innovative front line services for local communities. The LGA works with the sector to represent them on a wide range of issues from pensions and industrial relations through to local government resources.
The LGA will continue to work with our fire and rescue authority members to fight for key issues and matters of interest to the sector.
