Scilly’s Fire And Rescue Service To Partner With Cornwall
Councillors have agreed to form a strategic partnership between Scilly and Cornwall’s Fire and Rescue services in order to save money.
Head of Infrastructure Craig Dryden told members of the Transport, Economic Development and Infrastructure Committee that the first stage would be to appoint Cornwall’s Chief Fire Officer to the equivalent role in Scilly.
That will follow the retirement of the current Chief Fire Officer Steve Webster at the end of June.
The two authorities will still need to agree on the details, including staffing, by April next year.
It’s hoped the new arrangement will save Scilly’s Council around £120,000 each year.
