Dwelling fire numbers up in Essex

At a recent meeting of the Essex Fire Authority I was informed that the number of accidental dwelling fires in Essex in the year to February 2017 was 990. This compares to 943 for the previous twelve-month period.

This is a 5% increase. This is not a good backdrop for cuts to the number of firefighters.

Cuts have consequences.
