RESIDENTS are being urged to have their say on the future of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.

Over the past 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 September 23 and runs until this Friday.

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.

Chief Fire Officer 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 ten minutes completing the consultation so we can be sure as many people as possible have inputted into having their say on their local fire and rescue service."
