The Role of the Board

The SFRS Board consists of a Chair and up to 14 Members appointed by Scottish Ministers.

Following Covid-19 restrictions, the SFRS Board has adapted its approach to conducting its essential business, with members of the Board and its Committees and strategic leaders, utilising a blend of conference facilities and, on occasion, meeting in person at suitable venues around the country.

Where conference facilities are available, access can be provided to any members of the public who wish to attend and observe SFRS Board or Committee public meetings via these virtual facilities, by sending their name, contact details and email address to the SFRS Board Support Team who will then provide them with a link to join the meeting.

All agendas and papers for meetings will continue to be published on the SFRS’s Website in advance of meetings. A full minute will also be published once it has been approved.

Information on the expectations of the Board, including the Register of Interests, can be found in the Code of Conduct for Board Members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
