About us: 

Here in Greater Manchester we believe in leading the way and doing things differently.  GMCA plays a huge role in bringing people and organisations together.  Devolution gives local people more control over issues that affect our area.  It means that city regions speak with one voice and we can make the strongest case for resources and investment.  It also helps the entire North of England achieve its full potential.

 

As an employer, GMCA is an integrated organisation made up of a number of key pan-Greater Manchester strategic functions and service providers including: Waste; Environment; Work and Skills; Research; Public Sector Reform; Police; Crime and Criminal Justice; Homelessness; the Greater Manchester Aging Hub; the Commissioning Hub; and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS).

 

GMFRS is currently undergoing a service wide review under the title of “Programme for Change” (PfC), which has been driven from a number of factors, including: the response to the Manchester Arena attack, the Kerslake Report and feedback from frontline Firefighters with the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. More information about the PfC can be found on our website here: https://manchesterfire.gov.uk/programme-for-change/.

 

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service is one of the largest Fire and Rescue Services outside London with more than 2,100 members of staff and 41 fire stations. We cover an area of approximately 500 square miles and a culturally diverse population of 2.8 million people.
