Information for suppliers

Avon Fire & Rescue Service, overseen by Avon Fire Authority, allocates £12 million yearly for goods and services.

Avon Fire Authority is dedicated to transparent and responsible spending of public funds, ensuring fairness, honesty, and accountability in all decisions.

The Authority collaborates regionally with other Public Sector Organisations and nationally with entities such as National Fire Chiefs Council and Crown Commercial Services. Additionally, it engages in sub-regional partnerships, fostering an open environment for suppliers.
