Decision Made On Essex Fire Cuts

8 June 2016, 16:21

Plans which will see 138 full-time firefighter roles in Essex cut by 2020 have been approved.

The proposals will also see the number of fire engines reduced from 74 to 66.

In total it's meant to save £6.4 million.

It also means greater emphasis on the role of retained firefighters, with some full time crews becoming on-call ones.

Acting Chief Fire Officer Adam Eckley, has told HEART "it's a model that we know works... it's efficient (and) effective".
