Public urged to check who to ring during flooding

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is reminding the public that a number of organisations can help during flooding.

Heavy rain is forecast over the coming days and a new web page with lots of useful contacts is available here: http://www.esfrs.org/communitySafety/advice/flooding.shtml

During extreme weather we priorities calls where lives may be at risk - for example if homes are being flooded and electrics are affected.

We work with other organisations to tackle less serious incidents. Local councils are often responsible for clearing drains or fallen trees. East Sussex County Council and Brighton and Hove City Council both have teams dedicated to keeping roads clear.
