Policy and Challenge Groups 


From 2010/11, the Fire Authority replaced its former three Scrutiny Groups – Performance Achievement, Community Risk Management and Human Resources – with three Policy and Challenge Groups.

The Policy and Challenge Groups align to the structure of the Fire and Rescue Service in order to develop a more interactive relationship between Members and employees, make the scrutiny role of Members more visibly effective, and give Members responsibility for reporting to the Fire Authority.

Policy and Challenge Groups:

• Corporate Services
• Service Delivery
• Human Resources
