Control Regionalisation Petition
« on: January 23, 2007, 05:28:17 PM »
The following petition has been set up by colleagues in Avon F&RS.
If you read it and are willing to sign please follow the link below:


Your petition reads:
>     We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Scrap the ill
>     conceived and dangerous plans to regionalise Fire Control
>     rooms, instead ensuring that the existing network achieves a
>     sustainable standard.
>     The RCC project currently being undertaken by the government
>     which plans to reduce the number of Fire Controls from 43 to
>     just 9 relies too heavily on technology (which is currently
>     unproven), will encourage a lower standard of staffing both in
>     terms of numbers and experience and has a very high risk of
>     total failure.  This project will cost lives if it goes ahead,
>     and another public service will end up providing a second
>     class, top heavy service.  Thankfully, not all of us will have
>     cause to use the Fire Service throughout our lives but at least
>     we know that if we did today it would at least find us.  We the
>     undersigned feel that the current arrangement along with
>     improved investment is best suited to dealing with emergencies
>     of all kinds.

I signed it. That could cost lives someday, if the technology fails, which it no doubtedly will.
