London is one of the major cities in the world, covering an area of 1,595 square kilometres. Over 7.5 million people call it home and another half a million come here to work or visit every weekday. The LFB is responsible for providing fire and emergency cover across the Greater London area covering 32 London Boroughs and the City of London. This information which is set out in In your area provides key details to your local fire safety centres and your local fire safety regulation teams.
Our LFEPA section contains information on the role of the Members of our Fire Authority, how you can contact them and the Governance standards we set ourselves to provide an efficient and transparent democratic decision-making structure for the people of London.
The London Fire Brigade is run by LFEPA which is part of a group of organisations under the 'umbrella' of the Greater London Authority (GLA). A corporate governance GLA framework agreement for the GLA Group was published in May 2009 setting out their respective roles and responsibilities and the ways in which they do and should relate to each other. More information can be found in The way we work and the GLA website.
Depending on risks based within each borough, partnerships have been set up with local authorities, the police, voluntary organisations and others to help reduce fire, death, injuries and fire related crime. The information is currently only available in print and can be obtained free of charge by making a request to email@example.com.
