These eight buildings are in the process of being fitted out, including installing the IT hardware, AV screens and furniture. Note, the range reflects the relative stages of completion. Therefore, no regional control centre is yet operational.
In the interim the buildings are used for a range of purposes including Fire and Rescue Service meetings and workshops to progress FiReControl work. In many cases the regional project team works out of the RCC.
