Chiefs welcome Reform Bill
The Chief Fire Officers Association (Scotland) has welcomed the publication of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Bill 2012.
Commenting on the publication, Jimmy Campbell, CFOAS Chair said: "This draft Bill marks an important and very positive step forward on the road to a new Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and we look forward to working with the Scottish Government in shaping its content. "Fire reform presents us with a rare opportunity to build a new Fire and Rescue Service; one that continues the first class reputation we have established and that fully meets the needs of the Scottish people.
"It also represents a considerable challenge, and over the coming months we will be working with Government, our staff, trade unions and all stakeholders to ensure we deliver a Service of which we, and Scotland, can be justly proud."
Lee Howell, CFOA UK President, added: "We will be supporting colleagues in Scotland during what will inevitably be a difficult period of uncertainty and change. However, I am confident that CFOA colleagues in Scotland will continue to provide the leadership and professionalism required by this reform agenda."
