PCC Submits Fire Governance Case to Home Office
The business case for changing the governance of Hertfordshire’s Fire and Rescue Service has been submitted to the Home Office.

Following a full public consultation, David Lloyd has taken the decision to proceed with his proposal to become Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

In a letter to the Home Office, the PCC said he wanted to see the two services working even more closely together, and to protect the fire service’s budget.

It will now be considered by the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, who will ultimately decide on the final outcome.

David Lloyd said:

“The business case sets out a wide range of positive changes which can help to improve public safety and ensure that what is raised for our fire service is spent on our fire service.”

“I think that the prospect of driving further collaboration between the emergency services is greatly improved if police and fire share the same governance structure.”
