Date posted: 18-07-2012
FBU members will be on strike from 09:00 hrs this morning to 09:00 hrs tomorrow (Thursday).
Fire safety managers are asking the public to Be Safer, Be Slower, Be Vigilant during times of reduced fire cover. In an emergency you should continue to dial 999 and we will respond. In the event of fire, get out, stay out, call ECFRS out.
A spokesperson said: “The Service has excellent resilience arrangements in place today to keep Essex safe. Working Essex firefighters will be on the run from strategic locations across the County, supported by many retained crews who want to provide cover to their local communities.”
