It replaced the Greater London Council as fire authority when it was abolished.

The LFCDA was a joint authority, made up of councillors appointed by the London borough councils.

The LFCDA was replaced by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, a functional body of the Greater London Authority.[1]
