Welcome to the National Association of Healthcare Fire Officers (NAHFO)

NAHFO Yorkshire Branch acts as the voice of those associated with healthcare fire safety across the Yorkshire Region

The Yorkshire and Humber Branch of the National Association of Healthcare Fire Officers meets every two months and is made of fire safety professionals working within the healthcare fire safety sector.  It is a great forum to share ideas, discuss fire safety technical matters, share and debate best practice.  It offers CPD opportunities and is great way to network with healthcare fire safety professionals locally and nationally

Our Objectives


To promote

and encourage the furtherance of the highest standards of fire safety in healthcare premises.


To improve

the status and prospects of the Health Service Fire Officers, including a career structure.


To afford

facilities for training and the collation and dissemination of information to members.


To establish

We work with other fire organisations

To best achieve its objectives, NAHFO works very closely with other UK fire safety organisations and is considered as an authority in healthcare fire safety, NAHFO is made up of 13 regional Branches with a National Executive Committee that oversees the running of the organisation.

The membership includes NHS Trust Fire Safety Officers and Advisors, NHS Fire Safety Managers, Local Authority Fire and Rescue Service Officers, private healthcare fire officers and others who have a direct responsibility for fire safety within, or associated to healthcare settings.
