Nick Chard

Kent Fire and Rescue Service is one of the leading fire services in the country and I am delighted and very proud to be appointed to lead the Authority.

Like every public service, we are facing a tough financial climate, however I believe that by continuing to innovate we can maintain the high quality service that the people of Kent and Medway want and deserve. I look forward to working with other Authority Members, KFRS staff and other public sector colleagues to meet that challenge to deliver this vital service to local people.

Having led as the KCC Cabinet Member on Highways for some years, I appreciate the devastating impact of road traffic collisions. I have been impressed with the work Kent Fire and Rescue Service have done to help ensure young people understand the dangers – as drivers and passengers. I intend to take a particular interest in promoting the safety of young people on the roads, particularly through KFRS’s innovative road safety centre which is planned to open in 2015.
