The section seeks to be a focal point for advice and support on dealing with issues of discrimination, harassment and debarment as they affect B&EMMs of the fire and rescue service.

The section is committed to:

  • Offering help, support and to encourage networking by our members
  • To help fire and rescue services in ensuring that their BME recruitment, retention and progression strategies recognise the diversity in the communities they serve, and actively seek to reflect the very best of those communities
  • To advise and assist the FBU in educating its members in order to recognise, appreciate and respect cultural differences thus eradicating the effects of racial/cultural prejudice in the workplace and the community
  • To take full advantage of learning opportunities and to offer career guidance and influence in the creation and maintenance of supportive working environments
