A message from Roger Hirst, Police Fire & Crime Commissioner for Essex:
Today, I have launched a survey to ask the people of Essex for their views on the priorities to be included in the county’s first ever Fire and Rescue Plan.
A safe and secure county is what we all need to live our lives in peace and prosperity. We need a plan for Essex County Fire and Rescue Service which ensures we can help people to stay safe, reduce the number who are killed or seriously injured and minimise the damage to property and businesses.
I am developing this plan with input from all of those groups and individuals who work in, alongside and with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. I now want to make sure the priorities being proposed reflect what the people of Essex expect from their fire and rescue service.
The Plan will run from 2019 to 2024 and will be the basis on which I hold Essex County Fire and Rescue Service to account for its performance. The document mirrors the Police and Crime Plan which sets the priorities for policing in Essex.
People can fill in the survey online via this link / .
The survey will close at midnight on Tuesday January 15th, 2019.
I know I can rely on your assistance in sharing this survey and encouraging people who live and/or work in our county to complete it.
