Response

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Request as detailed below regarding the Rescue Max vehicle. The Rescue Max vehicle is not the responsibility of Brentwood Borough Council, the project is funded by Essex Fire and Rescue service, so you therefore need to forward this Freedom of Information Request on to them please for them to respond to.

On point 3 -5 - Rock Salt offered to Parish Councils was from Essex County Council who are the authority responsible for gritting the County’s roads. Brentwood Borough Council assist on areas such as pathways to Schools/doctors surgery’s. Ward Members have in the past been allocated up to 15 bags of rock salt (that BBC obtain from ECC) which they can distribute to community groups within their wards as required.
