Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service covers the area served by Buckinghamshire Council and Milton Keynes Council. These two councils appoint members to Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority to oversee the service. Their numbers are proportional to the populations they represent, with 12 members from Buckinghamshire Council and five from Milton Keynes Council.
Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority is a publicly accountable body which manages Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service on behalf of the communities it serves. Members make decisions on policy, finance and resources. Its role is to:
- Set the annual budget
- Agree the staff, vehicle and other resources needed to deliver an efficient service.
- Approve Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service’s plans, policies and strategies.
- Approve the composition of committees and sub-committees
Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Fire Authority normally meets four times a year, with an annual meeting held in June. At this meeting the Chairman is elected and the Vice-Chairman appointed, and committee membership decided.
