Merseyside's Police Commissioner joins region's Fire Authority

MERSEYSIDE Police Commissioner has become a member of Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority in a move aimed at further cementing ties between the 2 blue light services.  Jane Kennedy has become a full voting member of Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority (MFRA), a step that was unanimously approved at a meeting of the Authority.  The constitution of MFRA will now be amended and a revised version will go to the Authority for final approval, that will take place on 19 October 2017, at a meeting which the Commissioner will be invited to attend.  Following this meeting, the Commissioner will have voting rights at all future meetings involving the governance of Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS).

Jane Kennedy said:- "Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Services already work effectively together, with the Joint Command and Control Centre in Bridle Road being just 1 example of how efficiencies and savings can be made when the 2 organisations collaborate.  This is a sensible step aimed at further improving the relationship between these important services. I look forward to working with the Chair of the Authority, Cllr Dave Hanratty, Authority members, and Chief Fire Officer Dan Stephens and his Officers to bring benefits for people across the region."

Chair of Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority, Cllr Dave Hanratty said:- "We welcome the Commissioner to the Authority and look forward to working together with all emergency services for the benefit of all members of our community. Effective collaboration is 1 of the cornerstones of our work and the addition of Jane's voice to the Authority can only serve to further and enhance our joint efforts to protect people across Merseyside."
