Control Room Collaboration

13th February 2013

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority today agreed a proposal for the Service to look at a collaborative arrangement with Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service.

The proposal does not look at outsourcing either Service's  local control rooms but is about increasing resilience at busy times such as when there is localised flooding that affects an entire region as was experienced in the latter part of 2012. The geographic distance between the two Service's means they are unlikely to both be experiencing severe weather at the same time which provides increased resilience to both  Services.

The collaborative arrangement would see Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service's control room having the ability to take calls if necessary, on behalf of North Yorkshire, during busy times to reduce delay and vice versa. As both Cornwall and North Yorkshire are installing the same control mobilising system they will be able to 'mobilise' each others resources to incidents.
