Essex Fire & Rescue ConsultationFire & Rescue Service

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has launched a public consultation – a ten-minute survey asking the public of Essex about how their future priorities are delivered.

While their primary focus will always be:

  • to prevent emergencies, and
  • protect our most vulnerable residents,

… this consultation is a chance to tell them what matters to you and what approach you think they should take.

The responses they get from this consultation will enable them to develop an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) in the New Year.  An IRMP is a plan that assesses the risks they face and sets out how they plan to lessen them to ensure they deliver the right resources at the right time, in the right place.

The consultation gives anyone who lives, works or travels in Essex the chance to have their say on seven proposals.

To have your say, visit:

The consultation will close at 5 pm on Friday 13th December 2019.

Why Are They Consulting?

All fire and rescue services in England are required to develop an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP), and we like to ensure that ours is as open and accessible as possible, which is why we gain your views to inform the final version. We also believe this leads to a more engaged and safer Essex.

What Are Their Priorities?

The eight priorities outlined in the Fire and Rescue Plan are:

  • Enhance prevention, protection and response
  • Promote a positive culture in the workplace
  • Develop and broaden the roles and range of activities undertaken by the Service<
  • Collaborate with our partners
  • Be transparent, open and accessible
  • Improve safety on our roads
  • Make best use of our resources
