Support for FIRE AID from Chief Fire Officers Association

Wed 22, Oct, 2014

CFOA name the Presidential Team as the Chief Fire Officers Association’s representative within FIRE AID’s Steering Committee.

CFOA President Peter Dartford has expressed his support for FIRE AID, naming the Presidential Team as the Chief Fire Officers Association’s representative within FIRE AID’s Steering Committee.

Talking about this important step in FIRE AID’s development, founding member and Director of Publicity Alf Wilson commented:

FIRE AID as a new organisation in the Fire & Rescue Service community, welcomes CFOA, not only as a member of the steering group, but also as an important partner in the promotion of best practice in sustainable humanitarian projects and the ongoing FIRE AID mission to deliver, sustainable, targeted and effective Fire & Rescue humanitarian aid, both within the UK and internationally.”

Speaking at FIRE AID’s launch event at the House of Lords in June 2014, Peter Dartford had previously commented on CFOA’s support of FIRE AID in recognising it as an association that promotes best practice in the delivery of emergency services aid, promotes the work of its member organisations, and acts as a general communications hub for requests for aid. The involvement of CFOA at Steering Committee level represents a significant move forward.
