South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authorities have a new supplier of their new command and control system which will save £400,000 per year.

The £3m Systel contract is part of a major collaboration between the two fire and rescue authorities which is mostly funded by a Government grant.

The new contract will provide the two Authorities with ongoing service and maintenance savings of £400,000 per year in total, which will be reinvested to help to protect frontline services. The brand new, state-of-the-art equipment to receive 999 calls and mobilise emergency vehicles will be fully operational in 2014.
