Overnight strike ends with further strikes on way

A one hour strike by members of the Fire Brigades Union has ended and normal cover has resumed at East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.

FBU members walked out between 22.59 and 23.59 (13 August), in the pensions dispute with Government.

Our contingency crews made of non-FBU members attended one incident - reports of flooding affecting electrics.

Strikes will continue up to and including 16 August, at noon-2pm and 22.59-23.59 each day.

With resources reduced during strike periods, the Service is urging the public to take extra care and spread the word among friends, family and neighbours to do what they can to prevent emergencies.

If you do have a fire, get out, stay out and call 999. We have crews who will respond to emergencies, prioritising calls where lives may be at risk.
