Essex County Fire and Rescue Service http://www.essex-fire.gov.uk Essex County Fire and Rescue Service : News Feed Copyright 2019, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. Wed, 11 Dec 201909:00:00 GMT Volunteers thanked for commitment during dedicated ceremony Essex County Fire and Rescue Service held a dedicated event today (11 December) to thank its volunteers for their commitment to their communities.

Volunteers were invited to a ceremony at the Service Headquarters where they were presented with Certificates of Appreciation and thanked for giving their time to help make Essex a safer place to live, work and travel.

The Service has 46 volunteers who play a vital role in keeping our communities safe by carrying out home safety visits, supporting community safety events and helping to run the Service’s Fire Museum.

This year, volunteers in the Service have dedicated more than 4,500 hours of their time. They’ve supported more than 70 events across the county and carried out more than 1,700 home safety visits. They’ve enabled the Fire Museum to remain informative and entertaining to our public and this year held an Easter Open day which saw 2,000 visitors come through the doors.

Andrea MacAlister, Head of Community Safety said: “Your great generosity has had a profound and lasting impact on Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. Your willingness to share both your time and your talent by volunteering with us says a lot about each of you as human beings. Your willingness to give selflessly to help others speaks to both your strength and the quality of your character.

“When you volunteer, you are making a commitment to share that most precious of resources – your time – to make life safer for those who are in need. Your efforts make a tangible impact, of course, but perhaps it is the fact that you are willing to share your time and talent to lend a helping hand and to show kindness and caring that makes the greatest difference in the lives of the individuals who are touched by your generosity.”

Electrical fire destroys caravan - Sandy Lane, Chadwell St Mary A family has been left homeless after an electrical fire destroyed their caravan in the early hours of this morning.

Firefighters were called to a caravan fire in Chadwell St Mary early this morning after the residents heard their smoke alarms going off.

On arrival, crews reported that a static caravan, which measured 10m x 3m, was 75% alight.

Crews worked to extinguish the fire by 5:25am.

The caravan has been completely destroyed and the cause has been recorded as accidental after an electrical fault.

Watch Manager Leigh Pickett said: “The residents were able to get out of the caravan to safety after hearing their smoke alarms going off. They got themselves and their dog out safely and called us which is absolutely the right thing to do.”

Do you have working smoke alarms in your home?

Having a working smoke alarm on every level of your home is the best way to keep you and your family safe in the event of a fire. Smoke alarms give you an early warning sign to fire so you can get out, stay out and call the Fire Service out.

If you or someone you know doesn’t have working smoke alarms, we can fit them for free during a home safety visit. Book your visit at www.essex-fire.gov.uk/book

Don't miss out - let us know your views Don’t miss out on the chance to play a role in shaping the future of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.

Over the last 11 weeks hundreds of Essex residents have taken part in a consultation which gives them the chance to have their say on how the future priorities of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service are delivered.

The consultation was launched on Monday 23 September and runs until Friday 13 December.

It sets out the priorities for the Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and asks residents to agree or disagree on what they feel is a priority, as well as give the opportunity to share their opinions on the focus of the fire and rescue service.

All of the priorities prepare our Service for a future with reductions in incidents, an increased focus on prevention and a commitment to become financially sustainable as reductions in funding continue.

Chief Fire Officer / Chief Exec Jo Turton said:

“With just a few days left to take part in our consultation we’d love to see a final flurry of people give their voice and opinion in helping to shape our focus for the future.

“I urge anyone who has not already taken part to spend 10 minutes completing the consultation so that we can be sure as many people as possible have inputted into having their say on their local fire and rescue service."

Chimney fire - Swiss Avenue, Chelmsford Firefighters were called to a house fire in Swiss Avenue, Chelmsford earlier this evening after the resident heard their smoke alarms going off.

On arrival, crews reported that there was a fire behind the fireplace and in the chimney.

Crews used small tools to take the fireplace apart and extinguished the fire with chimney rods and a stirrup pump by 8:45pm.

Watch Manager Nick Singleton said: “We’d like to highlight the importance of having checks carried out on fireplaces and wood burners by suitably qualified tradespeople to ensure fireplaces and chimneys are in good working order before you use them. Make sure chimneys are swept once a year so you don’t get a build up of soot.”

Keep your family and home safe by following our chimney safety advice.

  • Have your chimney swept at least once a year, or more frequently if you burn wood.
  • Do not stack fires too high and remember to let them burn down well before you go to bed.
  • Use a fire or spark guard.
  • Do not place objects on or over the mantle-piece which may cause you to stand too close to the fire to reach or use them.
  • Inspect your chimney regularly - particularly in the roof space - to ensure that it is sound and that sparks or fumes cannot escape through cracks or broken bricks.
  • Avoid burning resinous woods as soot builds up quickly. Suitable seasoned timber must be used in all solid fuel stoves.
  • Buy only suitable fuels. Using the wrong type of fuel on a liner will reduce the life of the liner considerably due to increased corrosion.

Unattended chip pan causes fire - Westridge Way, Clacton Firefighters were called to a house fire in Clacton earlier this evening after the residents heard their smoke alarms going off.

On arrival, crews reported that a chip pan in the kitchen was on fire and worked to extinguish it by 6:31pm.

The kitchen suffered fire and smoke damage.

A man was treated with oxygen for smoke inhalation and was left in the care of the Ambulance Service.

Watch Manager Kieran Warner said: “Thankfully they had working smoke alarms, one upstairs and one downstairs which is great and those alarms alerted them to the fire. Please take care when cooking with oil and never leave cooking unattended.” 

Read our advice on cooking with oil:

  • Take care when cooking with hot oil – it sets alight easily.
  • Make sure food is dry before putting it in hot oil so it doesn’t splash.
  • If the oil starts to smoke – it’s too hot.  Turn off the heat and leave it to cool.
  • Use a thermostat controlled electric deep fat fryer.  They can’t overheat.
  • If your pan catches fire, turn off the heat if it is safe to do so.  Never throw water over it

Have you got working smoke alarms in your home?

If you or someone you know doesn't have working smoke alarms at home, we can arrange a free home safety visit, during which smoke alarms will be fitted free of charge. Book online at: www.essex-fire.gov.uk/book

Unattended candle causes house fire - Fitzgerald Close, Lawford Firefighters were called to a house fire in Lawford this morning after the resident heard her smoke alarms going off.

On arrival, crews reported that a room in a house was on fire and worked to extinguish it by 11:24am.

The cause of the fire was a candle which had been left unattended and caught fire to the furniture it was placed on.

The fire has been recorded as accidental.

Watch Manager Kieran Warner said: “The resident was alerted to the fire by her smoke alarms going off which is great. When she saw the smoke, she proceeded to shut every door on the way out and left the house to call the Fire Service. This contained the damage to just the one room.

“With the festive season upon us, people tend to use more candles at this time of year. If you are lighting candles, please don’t leave them unattended and make sure to put them out before leaving a room.”

Follow our advice below when using candles:

  • Make sure candles are secured in a proper holder and are away from materials that may catch fire – like curtains.
  • Children should not be left alone with lit candles.
  • Put candles out when you leave the room, and make sure they’re put out completely at night.
  • Keep the wax pool clear of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room, but avoid drafts, vents or air currents. This will help prevent rapid or uneven burning, sooting, and excessive dripping.
  • Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning, dripping or flaring.
  • Don’t move candles once they are lit.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations on burn time and proper use.
  • Do not burn several candles close together as this might cause flaring.

CharityTuesday: Ben is fundraising for Orchid Male Cancer Support Orsett firefighter Ben Whateley-Harris is getting behind Orchid Male Cancer Support by taking on as many events, competitions and races as possible.

Ben will complete a range of challenges during the remainder of 2019, following various half marathons and 10 kilometre races.

Last month, Ben took on the Winter Chase in Rye, East Sussex: a six hour endurance race in which participants aim to complete as many 4.4 mile laps as possible within the allotted time.

He managed to complete an incredible eight laps... 35.2 miles!

Finishing second out of all participants, Ben said: "The race was about more than just running the distance, but getting to various checkpoints in the wind and rain, with sea spray also affecting conditions.

"But overall, it wasn't bad for a bloke who isn't built like a runner!"

Last weekend, Ben took on another challenge at Bath University: a two day team fitness competition called Strength in Depth.

And he's not done there, either! This Saturday (7 December), Ben will complete a marathon row, ahead of the 'Essex 20 miler', Epping Forest 10 mile trail race and finally an over 35s multi-fitness and weightlifting competition in Colchester - all before Christmas.

Ben is looking to raise as much as possible for such an incredible cause, you can support him using his JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ben-whateley-harris1

Dog turns on microwave and causes kitchen fire - Kingsman Road, A kitchen fire in Stanford-Le-Hope was caused this afternoon after a dog inadvertently turned on a microwave.

Despite being positioned on the worktop, the husky inadvertently turned on the appliance while alone within the kitchen. A packet of bread rolls within the microwave began to burn, causing a small fire.

The owner of the semi-detached two storey property wasn't in at the time of the incident, but noticed smoke within the kitchen using a camera feed on his phone.

Geoff Wheal, Watch Manager at Corringham Fire Station, said: "Clearly this is a very strange incident involving the man's dog, but it could still have been more serious.

"When we arrived, the kitchen was filled with smoke. Firefighters ensured that the damage did not spread beyond the kitchen area - but it demonstrates that microwaves shouldn't be used to store food when they aren't in use.

"Our advice is to always keep your microwave clean and free of clutter or food and any packaging. Animals or children can turn them on more easily than you might think - so please don't run the risk."

The dog was unharmed.
