Good Intent and False Alarm – Calls for service that may be a true threat of fire, gas or other emergency hazard are actually found to be something else after Firefighters investigate the situation. These calls are coded as Good Intent calls. As well, many fire alarm activations are from causes other than fire or emergency hazard. These situations are categorized as False Alarm calls.
The Essex Fire Department contributed a total of 457 emergency personnel hours in the second quarter of 2016 to the Essex community and neighboring fire districts. This hourly total does not include: drills, meetings, or training.
