Details

In March 2012 the Department for Communities and Local Government approved funding and published a summary of the plans for fire and rescue authorities’ locally determined projects to improve their control room arrangements.

This document, based on updated information supplied by the fire and rescue authorities, provides an update on progress and shows that a tremendous amount of work is underway in fire and rescue authorities to deliver improvements to control room efficiency and resilience. It provides a revised high-level national summary of the improvements being made by each project, delivery timescales and projected savings.

It identifies which fire and rescue authorities have entered into new partnership agreements to deliver their future control rooms projects; and which are now forecasting different resilience benefits from those set out in the original project bids, while explaining how they will continue to provide increased resilience and specific improvements at a local level, thereby strengthening the building blocks of national resilience.
