Have your say on the future priorities of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has launched a public consultation - a ten minute survey asking the public of Essex about how our future priorities are delivered.

The consultation is a chance for the local community to tell us what matters to them and what approach they think we should take.

The responses will enable us to develop an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) in the New Year.

To have your say, visit: www.essex-fire.gov.uk/irmp before Friday 13 December 2019.
