FRSs collaborate to update control room tech

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire fire and rescue services have rolled out Saab’s SAFE control room solution.

According to a statement issued by the manufacturer, the solution will: “Provide [the organisations] with a unified mobilisation and communications platform, that transforms and streamlines business and operational workflows.

“The system,” the statement continued, “is founded upon a highly flexible and innovative ‘configuration framework’. This gives users the flexibility to create and modify key processes such as incident management workflows, call handling techniques, and attribute-based mobilising recommendations.”

Strategic collaboration lead for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, assistant chief fire officer Michael Sharman, said, “Our purpose is to serve the communities of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire by embracing new technology.

“By investing in a new mobilisation system, we will ensure that we are able to deliver a high-quality service more efficiently and effectively. We are excited to build a positive working relationship with Saab UK, and to see the benefits that this new system will bring”.

According to figures quoted by Saab, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire fire and rescue services serve over two million people between them. The roll-out took place as part of a joint service collaboration.
