Kent wins national Fire and Rescue Project of the Year award
Kent
Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) has won a national award in the public sector’s prestigious annual efficiency awards. The Improvement and Efficiency Social Enterprise (iESE) awards highlight the best practice and improvement from councils, police & fire services. KFRS, along with Kent Police, won the Fire & Rescue Project of the Year category for its work to develop a shared 999 mobilising system. KFRS is the first fire service in the UK to share a control room and work on a truly multi-agency mobilising system with police. The mobilising system provides real-time information on incident location and resources. This cost-effective solution allows the two services to share essential information, particularly during major emergencies, in order improve interoperability and rapidly mobilise the right resources. Other benefits to the move have included giving KFRS access to a countywide CCTV network, and improved joint working during major emergencies.
