Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Services multi-functional Command Development Centre is located in a refurbished building on the Daventry Fire Station site.  This facility is a state of the art suite which provides for the training and development of Fire and Rescue Service Incident Commanders, and also the training of personnel from the Police Service and others in the Multi Agency arena. 

As a fully equipped Hydra suite, multi-agency exercises are delivered at the Command Development Centre to help with the planning for large-scale emergencies and other events that require contingency plans to be practiced. The Northamptonshire Local Resilience Forum will regularly use the facility to exercise major incident plans and Northamptonshire Police are using the suite to train and develop their staff. The Hydra suite makes use of CCTV software apps to remotely view rooms using IPad’s to help facilitate Hydra exercises.
