The Role of the Board

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

The SFRS Board is following national guidelines and this is impacting on how we conduct our business.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is placing an unprecedented and dynamic set of challenges on individuals and organisations across the UK and beyond. The SFRS Board is following national guidelines and this is having an impact on how we are able to conduct our business.

For the foreseeable future, all essential business of the SFRS Board or its Committees will be conducted via conference facilities with participating members and senior officers dialling in from various locations.

Should any members of the public wish to attend and observe SFRS Board or Committee public meetings remotely via conference facilities then they can do so by sending their name, contact details and email address to the SFRS Board Support Team who will then contact you with a link to join the meeting.

As you will appreciate, this is an unprecedented situation and we hope to be able to revert to business as usual when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, all agendas and papers for meetings will continue to be published on the SFRS’s Website in advance of meetings. As of March 2021, recordings of all public Board and Committee meetings will also be published on the SFRS’s Website as soon as practicable following the meeting. 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.
