Parish Safety Volunteers Required by Essex Fire Service & Essex Police

Are you interested in making a real difference in your local community, helping people to live and feel safer?

Do you want to volunteer with both Essex County Fire and Rescue Service AND Essex Police?


Our two services are working together to launch a brand new volunteer scheme! We are looking to recruit two Parish Safety Volunteers per Parish in Essex, tasked with arranging and conducting home safety visits. These volunteers will deliver crucial fire and crime prevention advice, extensive knowledge of local support services and the ability to fit smoke detectors directly into the homes of those most in need.


If you’re interested, you’ll need to apply for interview and be required to undertake Essex Police vetting. You will receive comprehensive training from both Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Police, a full uniform and all equipment required to carry out the role. To ensure volunteers are well supported, Parish Safety Volunteers from across the county will be invited to on-going training and networking opportunities throughout the year.”
