London's Fire Commissioner Resigns
Tuesday 2nd September 2014
London's Fire Commissioner has announced his resignation.
Ron Dobson says it had been an "incredibly difficult" decision having served the capital for 35 years.
In a letter to the chairman of the London Fire and Emergency Planning
Authority, he said: "I believe now is the right time for both the London
Fire Brigade and me to make this change."
Boris Johnson says Mr Dobson has been an exemplary Fire Commissioner.
"He has worked tirelessly to modernise the fire service, whilst at the
same time cutting significantly the number of deaths and injuries from
fire across the capital," the Mayor continued.
"I am grateful for his advice, his leadership and his immense dedication."
