Fire Services: Buildings

Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what account her Department took of shift patterns in determining the size of regional fire control centres. (187839)

None. Shift patterns have no material impact on the size of the Regional Control Centres. The size of the buildings was based primarily on the number of staff required to provide a resilient 24 hour operation.

Shift patterns for regional control centre staff will be the responsibility of the eight regional Local Authority Control Companies and the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA).
