It is 6 months since the department published an updated 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, while explaining how the fire and rescue authorities will continue to provide increased resilience and specific improvements at a local level, thereby strengthening the building blocks of national resilience. The document summarises this information to show a national summary of the resilience benefits and projected savings that will be delivered.
