The Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service is the fire and rescue service which covers Leicestershire including the unitary authority of Leicester, and the county of Rutland.

History

The Leicestershire and Rutland Fire Brigade and the separate City of Leicester Fire Brigade were created in 1948 by the Fire Services Act 1947. In 1974 the City of Leicester FB was merged with Leicestershire & Rutland FB to create the present fire service.

Since Rutland and the City of Leicester became separate authorities in the 1990s. The fire authority which administers the service, is a joint-board made up of representatives from Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council.
