Regional Control Centre (RCC) update

In its plan for the next five years the new coalition Government has announced it will ‘stop plans to force the regionalisation of the fire service’. 

At this stage AF&RS would expect any new Government to be looking at all aspects of the planned RCC.

Chair of Avon Fire Authority, Councillor Terry Walker, said: “When we get a definitive statement from the Government we will consider the matter afresh.

"We have always held the view that our control centre at Lansdown provides us with all the resilience we need.”
