The Hydra Foundation have now installed and commissioned Hydra in the Cloud for Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue service at their new training centre. This is now the 2nd Fire service to run Hydra in the Cloud, the first being North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue. Professor Jonathan Crego MBE, Hydra Foundation Director, described the North East Fire Services as pioneering the use of Hydra in the Cloud. The centre opened in August 2015 is used by Durham Constabulary as part of a collaborative project in using Hydra methodology. Training by the Hydra Foundation was provided with the first exercise due to be delivery shortly.
