Since we usually gain consensus following a wide debate amongst our membership, we are free and able to speak, airing views that are sometimes controversial and, when required we will, "put a head above the parapet" whilst acting responsibly in support of our aim.

In short we provide an umbrella organisation for "UK Fire plc", operating across the board with interested parties, all sharing thoughts and like needs. We also work in partnership with others to promote UK fire trade abroad and at home, helping ensure the industry is heard and understood. We think it important and want to be an organisation where all the key players in the Fire business can sit down together around the same table!

Mainly we listen and then act. We listen to what industry and the fire and rescue service have to say and then through discussion, we try to act in their collective best interest.
