As part of the FiReControl project, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue's control room was planned to switch over to the regional control centre in Taunton. Originally scheduled to take place in January 2011, the cutover date was revised to September 2011, however this plan was thrown into doubt in May 2010 when the government announced that fire services would not be forced to reorganise.
