Essex’s first ever Fire and Rescue Plan was officially launched on Friday 1 March, setting out the vision and priorities for the delivery of fire and rescue services in Essex.

The plan runs from 2019 to 2024 and is the basis on which Roger Hirst, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) holds Essex County Fire and Rescue Service to account for its performance. The document mirrors the Police and Crime Plan, which sets the priorities for policing in Essex.

It is not only a first for Essex, but is the first Fire and Rescue Plan in the country produced by a Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

Roger said: “I have developed this plan with input from all of those groups and individuals who work in, alongside and with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. The priorities in the plan reflect what the people of Essex expect from their fire and rescue service.”

The eight priorities are:

• Enhance prevention, protection and response
• Promote a positive culture in the workplace
• Develop and broaden the roles and range of activities undertaken by the Service
• Help the vulnerable to stay safe
• Collaborate with our partners
• Be transparent, open and accessible
• Improve safety on our roads
• Make best use of our resources.
