FiReControl will create nine amalgamated Regional Control Centres to replace 46 existing control rooms in England, on the model already used to merge three control rooms into one in London in 1990. IT costs were originally budgeted at £120 million, with a planned completion date for the IT part of the project of 2009. The latter has slipped to 2011, with the cost now estimated at £190 million.So that's £70 million over budget and two year late (so far), but more importantly, who decided to call it "FiReControl"?
I'm guessing the crazy capitalisation is the FRC standing for Fire Regional Control? Either way it looks like something you would see after you've been fragged by someone with a railgun in one hand and a flame thrower in the other.*
