Email East Sussex Fire Authority to demand they stop fire and rescue cuts
Thanks to everyone who supported our campaign, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were forced to rethink the cuts and put forward new proposals. These proposals have now been accepted by the fire authority.
Under the new plan, four fire engines have been saved and a number of stations will retain whole-time firefighters for day-time fire cover seven days a week. The service has also been forced to change plans which would have seen huge numbers of firefighter posts cut.
Together, we’ve helped to keep East Sussex residents safe.
