Havering has a new fire station. I had the pleasure of joining Mayor of London Boris Johnson and other community leaders at the opening of the new fire station in Harold Hill. It is an impressive state of the art facility and will be a significant addition to local fire services. In recent years Havering's response times for fire call outs have not been as good as they should be. The new fire officers and resources at Harold Hill will make an important contribution to improving performance across the borough.
