We are London's fire and rescue service - the busiest in the country and one of the largest firefighting and rescue organisations in the world. We are here to make London a safer city.
We will always respond to fires and other emergencies but our work has changed over the years, with a much stronger emphasis now on fire prevention and community safety.
The Brigade is part of a group of organisations that make up the Greater London Authority.
The London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority runs the Brigade.
