Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
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."
