Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue

I met with Group Commander Ray Harris to hear about the scope of their work including their operational commitments to fire and rescue as well as their enforcing role of ensuring the safety of commercial and public buildings . Ray is passionate about their educational role and prevention activities. I am committed to supporting the efforts to ensure that all Housing Associations and landlords install smoke detectors in their properties.

We also discussed the issue of Regional Control Centres and delays over the implementation of the Centres, currently  costing large amounts of public without being operational; another example of hardware and software issues costing the tax payer vast amounts of money.
