Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is committed to promoting road safety and seeking to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads of Essex as a result of road traffic collisions (RTCs).
In 2007 1,065 people were killed or seriously injured on the roads in Essex. By 2017, this has fallen by 19% to 855. Whilst this is a tremendous success, and a tribute to the effectiveness of road safety activities in Essex, the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads remains unacceptably high.
Knowing how to reduce the risk of fire in your home is an important part of living safe and well. You can find lots of useful information about the common causes of fire in the home and what you can do to prevent them in the links above.

Business owners are responsible for the protection of their property and their workforce and we want to work with you to ensure this process is smooth. Among the responsibilities is a requirement to carry out your own fire risk assessments and create a plan.
