FBU announces national strike action
The Fire Brigades Union has announced further strike dates in its national dispute with Government over planned changes to firefighter pensions.
Members of the FBU will strike from 6pm on October 31 to 6pm on November 4 - in four days of continuous action.
With the dispute covering the Halloween and Firework celebrations, ECFRS is recommending that the best way to keep you and your family safe is to attend an organised display. Follow our advice and safety tips on Facebook and Twitter.
Essex will once again have strong resilience arrangements in place to protect the County with working crews providing cover. You can help us to help you in the run up to the strike by making sure your home is fitted with a working smoke alarm and make sure you check on elderly and vulnerable members of your family and neighbourhood to make sure they have one too.
