The aim is to recruit Parish Safety Agents as volunteers to actively encourage people to have fire alarms fitted into their homes (free service) and advise on general fire safety issues. You will be trained to provide Home Fire Safety Communication as well as equipped to fit Fire Alarms appropriate to resident’s needs. Safety Agents will also receive training from Essex Police that could be shared with other community members. The Fire Brigade carry out training, provide uniforms and pay expenses for the Safety Agents so there is no cost to the local community but they do ask Parishes to identify potential volunteers in their communities, put their names forward and store equipment (fire alarms & screwdrivers) for the Fire Safety Agents.
