East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has returned to normal cover following this lunchtime's two hour strike by the Fire Brigades Union.
Between noon and 2pm today (11 August), contingency crews were on duty, however no incidents required attendance.
The next strike takes place tonight between 22:59 and 23:59. Resources will once again be reduced and we will be prioritising 999 calls where lives may be at risk. ESFRS is urging members of the public to do what they can to prevent incidents and stay safe. A series of checklists and videos contain simple and practical advice on a range of topics such as staying safe on the road, staying safe in the kitchen, smoke alarm testing and fire safety information for business owners.
You could also help out by spreading these safety messages to friends, family and communities. A series of posters are available that you can print out and display in business and flats.
