The North Carolina Fire Commission was transferred to the North Carolina Department of Insurance in October, 1985. At that time, the Commissioner of Insurance vowed support of this agency and has since that time supported it with personnel, budget, etc. In July, 1989, the Legislature passed a Bill which changed the makeup of the Commission. The Fire Commission became the Fire and Rescue Commission, with duplicate responsibilities in the area of rescue as was previously held for fire. The Department of Insurance serves as staff to the Commission, with the Commission currently having a permanent staff of seven.
The areas of responsibility for the Commission lie in numerous areas. The General Statutes that control the operation, selection, and duties of the Commission are found in G.S. 58-78-1;. 58-78-5; 58-78-10; 58-78-15; 58-78-20.
The Commission also operates under the duties described in the Administrative Procedures act which seek to clarify additional duties.
