THE Fire Brigades' Union is calling on councillors to block a bid to shut West Yorkshire Fire Service's control room.
The room is due to be amalgamated with the control rooms of South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Humberside to form a regional control centre.
But the FBU has urged members of the Yorkshire and Humberside Fire Authorities' regional management board to speak out against the Government's plans when it meets on Thursday.
The plan has been formed by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, and councillors are under pressure to endorse the proposal.
FBU executive council member Bob Blackburn said: "This dangerous plan will axe all our excellent command and control centres and be a financial burden on the fire service and council taxpayers for years to come.
"It's expensive, it's risky, it won't save a single life and could end in total failure.
"The regional board now has an opportunity to reject the Government's plans in the absence of evidence that the replacement centre will be able to deliver the same level of service."
The move is part of a national plan by the Government to have eight or nine regional control centres instead of one for each fire service.
It is expected the site for the new Yorkshire and Humberside centre will be revealed in the next couple of months.
