Have you had your say on the future priorities of ECFRS?

Hundreds of people have already taken part in a consultation which gives residents the chance to have their say on how the future priorities of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service (ECFRS) are delivered.

The consultation runs until Friday 13 December and sets out the priorities for ECFRS by asking residents to agree or disagree on what they feel is a priority, as well as give the opportunity to share their opinions on the focus of the fire and rescue service.

The questions asked in the consultation include points around road safety, home visits, staff training and keeping vulnerable people safe.

All of the priorities prepare the Service for a future with reductions in incidents, an increased focus on prevention and a commitment to become financially sustainable as reductions in funding continue.

Chief Fire Officer/ Chief Executive Jo Turton said:

"Our Service recognises the voices of our residents are paramount in creating a transparent and effective fire and rescue service.

"This is the ideal opportunity for anyone who has ideas or views about their fire service to be involved in shaping our future."
