MPs on attack over cost of fire call centre

Call Centre Update News >>

Ministers face renewed criticism over a new controversial regional fire control centre in Wakefield.

MPs on an influential Commons select committee said performance on key fire service projects including the setting up of regional control rooms gives "cause for concern".
Their report comes as new figures seen by the YEP reveal £230,881 has been spent on gas and electricity bills at Yorkshire's new regional control centre at Wakefield's Paragon Business Park, which is standing virtually empty. Taxpayers have also paid £1.67m in rent, maintenance, landscaping, cleaning and security costs.
The Government is streamlining England's 46 local control rooms into nine centres. In Yorkshire control rooms in Birkenshaw, Sheffield, Hessle near Hull and Northallerton are due to replaced.
The Wakefield centre was built in 2008 but – amid a catalogue of technical problems – the switchover of emergency calls from West Yorkshire will not take place until July 2012.
