The Nassau County Fire Commission is comprised of nine Fire Commissioners, one from each Fire Battalion of Nassau County. The members are elected internally through each Fire Battalion to serve on the board for a term of one year. The board itself elects a Chairman, Vice Chairman, and Secretary each year. Serving as the Executive Officer to the Board is Chief Fire Marshal Scott D. Tusa

The Nassau County Fire Commission acts as a liaison between the Nassau County Fire Service and county government. They have internal committees which monitor, and when necessary provide assistance and guidance in resolving matters related to the county's fire and EMS services. The commission is responsible for the promulgation of the the Nassau County Fire Prevention Ordinance, approving amendments, and hearing variance requests when required. In addition, the commission, in accordance with civil service guidelines conducts interviews, grants appointments, and promotions for fire marshals, fire communications technicians, and EMS instructors when such positions are available.
