The new facility brings together Lincolnshireâ€™s fire and rescue services, police force and ambulance service under one roof in a bright and modern facility in Lincoln. It is the central element of the council plan which will also see the demolition of the current Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue HQ on South Park Avenue to make way for the new combined facility.
Marc Jones, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire:
â€œOur emergency services will now work together to deliver a first-class tri-services campus to meet the future needs of the county. By sharing headquarters with the fire and rescue service, both organisations can adapt more easily to change and improve their ways of working, including making best use of technological advancements that are so important to efficiency. The new tri-service campus will allow us to create an operational and integrated base fit for the next generation. At the same time, we will be able to work more closely together â€“ a significant advantage in many emergency situations as well as being of benefit to the taxpayers of Lincolnshire.â€
The new development will act as an exemplar facility for tri-service collaboration between the Police, Fire & Rescue and Ambulance services and is due to be completed in September 2019.
