Our Information and Data
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is supportive of the principles of the Local Government Transparency Code which endorses the ethos that all data held and managed by local authorities should be made available to the public - taking into account certain sensitivities for privacy and security considerations – and that this data can be used by the local businesses for business opportunities, better management of public assets and services and to help combat fraud.
The Code was introduced to meet the Government’s desire for increased accountability and, through delivery of its recommendations, it allows the public access to the tools and information they need to enable them to play a bigger role in society.
