The locally enabling provisions within the Policing and Crime Act 2017 allow Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to take on fire and rescue governance, where a local case is made.

Four PCCs have so far taken on responsibility for fire governance.

There are currently no plans to give PCCs responsibility for further blue light services.
