FRSA National Update

Subscription Rate Review

The FRSA has always strived to ensure that our member subscription rates are kept to an affordable level for all fire and rescue service staff while maintaining an appropriate level that provides a first-class service at the point of need. 

Please note that we have not increased our subscription rates since 2018

You will be aware that costs continue to increase, both in terms of utilities  as well as legal fees, this combined with the recent pay increase for all grey book staff, means that we have felt it has been necessary and appropriate to review all of our rates of membership, which was duly undertaken at the annual meeting of our Executive Board last month. 

I can therefore confirm that our monthly rates have been amended accordingly and will come into effect on 01 September 2023.
