Essex County Fire and Rescue Service


Public Consultation

Between February and April 2016 we carried the second part of a two-stage consultation process asking the public's views on some specific Option for Change.

Following this consultation - which saw nearly 18,000 responses - Essex Fire Authority agreed proposals to change the future shape and size of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.

Under the agreed option, the Service will have 66 fire engines, 18 of which would be wholetime and 48 on-call; a reduction in wholetime firefighter numbers from 570 to 432, with on-call firefighters numbers rising from 437 to 456.

This consultation closed on 25 April 2016.
