The £1 billion merger of fire control rooms could be a dangerous failure because too little has been done to win support for the reforms, MPs have warned.
England's 47 control fire control rooms are to be merged into just nine high-tech facilities.
The five West Midland brigades will give up their control rooms and one call centre will deal with more than 96,000 calls a year across the whole region.
B ut the Commons Communities and Local Government Committee, including Warwickshire MP Bill Olner (Lab Nuneaton), voiced concern about the "widespread" lack of confidence in the Fire Service about the ambitious Government plans.
In a report today, the MPs said they were concerned about the lack of information about funding the £1 billion scheme.
Greater support should be achieved if the plan was to have any hope of success, the committee.
Committee chairman Dr Phyllis Starkey said: "This is a time of great change within the Fire and Rescue Service.
"If the potential benefits of these reforms are to be fully realised, it is essential that the Government and the Fire Service work together on an agreed agenda for change."
The Fire Brigades Union has warned that the fire control project could end in "disaster" and has urged the Government not to go ahead with it.
The affected fire brigades in the West Midlands will be Shropshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Hereford & Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
