TitleSouth Yorkshire Fire & Civil Defence Authority
DescriptionThe South Yorkshire Fire and Civil Defence (SYFCDA) was established in 1986 following the abolition of the SYCC. It was an independent body made up of 12 locally elected councillors and was serviced by the Joint Secretariat. It was accountable to the public of South Yorkshire in securing the maintenance of an efficient Fire and Rescue service. It funded the South Yorkshire Rescue Service and worked closely with the Chief Fire Officer.

The first meeting of the interim South Yorkshire Fire and Civil Defence Authority took place in September 1985 under the auspices of South Yorkshire County Council.

The Authority discussed financial, strategic, personnel and operational reports as regular agenda items. Its name was changed to the Fire and Rescue Authority in May 2005.
