Firefighters' Compensation Scheme (England) Order 2006 comes into force

Implementation date: 7 August 2006

The Order provides for a new compensation scheme for firefighters in England. The new scheme consists primarily of provisions relating to ill health and injury awards in respect of firefighters, their spouses, civil partners, children and other dependants, that are similiar to those contained in, but to be removed from, the Firemen's Pension Scheme Order 1992. The Order can be viewed on the OPSI website.
