Bedfordshire Fire Authority
The Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Authority (the Authority) is an independent body which has responsibility for ensuring proper governance arrangements and controls are in place to enable the effective exercise of the Authority’s functions and the management of risk. The Authority is made up of councillors (“Members”) appointed to it for the municipal year by its three constituent authorities. Their numbers are proportional to the populations they represent.
