FIREMASTER CLIVE HALIDAY QFSM MIFireE.
1984 to 1991
Northern Ireland's Chief Fire Officer, Mr Clive Haliday, MIFireE, has been
appointed Firemaster of Strathclyde. He succeeds Mr R J Knowleton who has become
Chief Inspector of Fire Services in Scotland.
Firemaster Haliday began his Fire Service career in Manchester in 1960 and held the rank of SDO in the reorganised Greater Manchester area before moving to Staffordshire as ACFO in 1978. He took command of the Fire Authority for Northern Ireland in 1982.

Clive Halliday, QFSM, MiFireE, has retired from Strathclyde Fire Brigade and
been succeeded by the deputy John Jameson.
Mr. Halliday joined the Fire Service in the old City of Manchester Fire Brigade in 1960 and is thought to be the only fire officer to have served in a county borough, county, metropolitan, country (Northern Ireland) and regional council brigades. He is probably also the only principal officer to have served brigades covered by the Home Office, Scottish Office and Northern Ireland Office.
He was the regional fire commander designate in Northern Ireland and also for the South Zone of Scotland. He was a past council member of the IFE, adviser to the NJC and COSLA, chairman of the Scottish Branch of CACFOA and one of the chairmen of the Extended Interview Panels for the Brigade Command Course. He is the current chairman of the FSNB Fund.
Prior to joining Manchester Fire Brigade, Mr. Halliday served 10 years in the Royal Navy and since retirement has taken up the voluntary responsibility of the emergency planning officer for the Red Cross (Scottish Section) coordinating the 35 Scottish Red Cross Groups.
