A letter from Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
Today, I have launched a survey to ask the people of Essex for their views on the priorities to be included in the county’s first ever Fire and Rescue Plan.
A safe and secure county is what we all need to live our lives in peace and prosperity. We need a plan for Essex County Fire and Rescue Service which ensures we can help people to stay safe, reduce the number who are killed or seriously injured and minimise the damage to property and businesses.
I am developing this plan with input from all of those groups and individuals who work in, alongside and with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service. I now want to make sure the priorities being proposed reflect what the people of Essex expect from their fire and rescue service.
The Plan will run from 2019 to 2024 and will be the basis on which I hold 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.
People can fill in the survey online via this link http://www.essex.pfcc.police.uk/fire-rescue-plan-2019-2024-public-survey/ . Hard copies are also available on request. Please contact my office on 01245 291600 if you would like a copy or email firstname.lastname@example.org
They can also write to PFCC for Essex, Kelvedon Park, London Road, Rivenhall, Witham, Essex, CM8 3HB.
The survey will close at midnight on Tuesday January 15th, 2019.
I know I can rely on your assistance in sharing this survey and encouraging people who live and/or work in our county to complete it.

Cressing Parish Council have recently provided two defibrillators; one at the Evangelical Church and one at St Barnabas. These are easy to use as the equipment guides you through all necessary actions, but the Parish Council will be arranging for training on the equipment shortly, so please refer back to this website for further information on dates.
In the meantime, any queries should be directed to the Parish Clerk.
A120 - Essex County Council have announced their preferred route as Option D.
At the announcement they explained their decision process and advised that Option D provides best value for money, stating that for every £1m spent on upgrading the A120; residents, road users and business will see £3.750m in benefits. It is the route that provides for least impact on residential properties along the route and the environment. this link will take you to full details together with a video showing the route. www.a120essex.co.uk
Don't forget to look at the Noticeboard page where the latest notices regarding traffic regulations and roadworks are posted, as well an interesting report on the incinerator at Rivenhall that will affect everyone in the Braintree District.
