Governance of Evesham Fire-Rescue is provided by the Evesham Township Fire District No. 1 through a publicly elected five member Board of Fire Commissioners. The Fire District created by Evesham Township Ordinance No. 68-20 has all the powers of municipal government except the power to legislate. All local legislation (ordinances) are created through the Evesham Township Council. The Fire District is the responsible public agency for providing all Fire and Emergency Medical Services for and to the township. In addition, the Fire District operates the Office of Emergency Management and provides Uniform Construction Code services to the townships’ Department of Community Development.

The Board of Fire Commissioners are responsible for establishing operational policies, hiring and appointing members, and the funding for the operations of the Fire District within the guidelines and statutes of the State of New Jersey. The board, as public officials, must follow all of the rules that are promulgated for public agencies.

The Board of Fire Commissioners each serve a three year term, with the elections staggered over the three year term. From time to time, special elections must be held to approve bond issues and/or capital expenditures.
