Gypsy and Traveller Fire Safety

10 April 2018

The Essex Countywide Traveller Unit (ECTU) works in partnership with Essex Fire and Rescue to provide fire safety advice and support to the Gypsy/Traveller community.

Our outreach team is fully trained by Essex Fire and Rescue and has been working closely with the Traveller community for many years, visiting sites and homes to provide advice on fire safety issues and actions. We also issue smoke alarms.

We have created fire safety advice leaflets which have been designed specifically for Gypsies and Travellers.

We also have a rolling programme of Traveller friendly fire safety events.

If you would like to book a FREE home or site fire safety visit, or to request a copy of our Fire Safety for Gypsy/Travellers guide please contact:
