|Chief Fire Officer||John Buckley|
|Facilities and equipment|
The City of Nottingham Fire Brigade and the Nottinghamshire Fire Brigade were created under the Fire Services Act 1947.
In 1974, the two brigades were merged. Since 1998 when Nottingham became a separate local government area, the service has been run by a joint fire authority made up of councillors from Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
In 2018/2019, every fire and rescue service in England and Wales was subjected to a statutory inspection by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HIMCFRS). The inspection investigated how well the service performs in each of three areas. On a scale of outstanding, good, requires improvement and inadequate, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service was rated as follows:
|Effectiveness||Requires improvement||How effective is the fire and rescue service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks?|
|Efficiency||Requires improvement||How efficient is the fire and rescue service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks?|
|People||Requires improvement||How well does the fire and rescue service look after its people?|
The service's headquarters and control room were located in Arnold, until relocating to a new building in 2022, achieving co-occupancy with Nottinghamshire Police in a £18.5 million building project at Burntstump Country Park.
The service development centre in Ollerton provides firefighting training, and drivers are trained to use blue lights at Highfields fire station in Beeston.
The service's fire stations are crewed by wholetime firefighters, on-call retained firefighters, or a mixture of both.
