Emergency planning

The London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) runs the London Fire Brigade – the city’s fire and rescue service. The London Fire Brigade provides various services, including:

  • community safety
  • emergency response
  • emergency planning (for major incidents)
  • resilience (preparing for new threats and hazards)
  • regulatory safety (public safety in buildings)

The LFEPA meet regularly to decide on strategy, policy and budget for the London Fire Brigade.

The Mayor appoints eight Assembly Members to sit on the Authority, reflecting the balance of political parties in the London Assembly. The Mayor also appoints seven borough representatives (to reflect the balance of parties in London local authorities), as well as two Mayoral representatives and the Chair.

The London Assembly monitors the budget and performance of the LFEPA.
