One incident attended during today’s lunchtime strike



East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service have returned to normal cover following this lunchtime’s two hour strike by the Fire Brigades Union.

Between noon and 2pm today (14 August), contingency crews were on duty, and attended one incident, which was a lock out at a residential property in Queensway, Brighton. The call was received at 13.48. No action was taken by fire crews.

Members of the public are still being urged to remain vigilant during this week’s FBU strike action, which is part of the ongoing national dispute over pensions involving the Fire Brigades Union and Government. 

The next strike takes place at 22.59 tonight.

Information about further strikes can be found here:  http://www.esfrs.org/about_us/industrialaction.shtml, along with a number of safety messages and checklists, including how to cook safely and dealing with kitchen fires, that can help keep our communities vigilant, alert and safe.

We have also just launched our latest Text Tales campaign, giving advice on how to keep safe during the summer months. Take a look at our safety messages here and feel free to download our posters, which you can display to help spread these messages and keep our communities safe.
