Regional Fire Control Should be Scrapped

The Fire Brigade Union's asking the new Government to scrap plans for Devon's emergency calls to be handled up in Taunton.

The regional control centre is 4 years behind schedule, has cost us 13 million pounds, and is something the Conservatives previously said they wouldn't support if they won the election.

FBU spokesman Tam McFarlane: "we'll be demanding that this project is scrapped. A Conservative manifesto promise was to scrap the regional fire control centre project and we will be holding them to that promise."

He continued: "public finances are under enormous pressure. It's time to cut out the waste that isn't needed - and that of course is the regional fire centre - and invest in the front line services where it is needed."
