At present, the principal charities we support are:

Chair - National Fire Chiefs Council

Hertfordshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service has a new Chief Fire Officer effective from April as the current chief, Roy Wilsher is seconded to take up a high-profile national role as Chair of the National Fire Chiefs Council after 12 years at the top in Hertfordshire.

Hertfordshire County Council has appointed Darryl Keen, the current deputy chief, as Acting Director of Community Protection, which includes the role of Chief Fire Officer. He will be responsible for managing an integrated department that brings together Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Trading Standards, Emergency Planning and a joint Community Safety Unit run with the police.

Richard Thake, Cabinet Member for Community Safety, said: “While we’re sorry to see Roy Wilsher leave, his appointment to this high-profile national role is a testament to the excellent work he’s done as Chief Fire Officer and Director of Community Protection at Hertfordshire County Council. It’s a great reflection on Hertfordshire that Roy’s peers believe his experience here makes him the best person to represent and coordinate the UK’s fire services nationally and work with central government to help deliver the Home Office’s programme of fire reform.

Darryl will take up his new role on 1 April 2017.
