Essex County Fire and Rescue Service’s Community Development & Safeguarding Team has designed and created a number of targeted intervention programmes which are delivered across Essex to a wide range of individuals – including children and adults.
Our core programmes include:
- Education in Schools – including our online Education Hub
- Fire Cadets and the Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Juvenile Fire Setters Scheme
We deliver education programmes to over 150,000 school children every year, deliver many Firebreak programmes and have 18 Fire Cadet Units running across 6 stations.
Essex has been recognised nationally and internationally for its innovative approach to community engagement and supporting some of the most vulnerable members of the community.
