Faith and Fire was founded in 2013 by Fire Officer Daryl Oprey (the then CFOA Chief Fire Officers Association Lead on Equality and Inclusion) and Jacquetta Gomes Bodhicarini Upasika Jayasili (his then Advisor on Interfaith and Multifaith).

Fire Officer Daryl Oprey stated “With respect to the Fire Service involvement it is around us being a more inclusive, aware and conspicuous service not just about dealing with tragedy but preventing it. We treat everyone as members of society and appreciate that our service delivery needs to be shown as being adaptable and considerate of all faiths and cultures. It is not enough to believe that ‘one size fits all’.”
