The NFFPC is managed by a group of Commissioners selected by the agencies they represent, an Executive Committee composed of officers elected by the Commission annually, and an Operations Committee that consists of the fire supervisors in charge of the fire program within each member agency.
Every full Compact member has three (3) commissioners selected by the agency that they represent. Every associate member has two (2) non-voting commissioners selected by their agency, usually represented by the manager for the local area.
The Operations Committee is composed of the fire supervisors in charge of the fire program within each member agency. The Chair of the Operations Committee is a two (2) year term and rotates among the member agencies.
