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.
