Normal cover resumes following FBU strike

Normal cover has resumed at East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service following the latest Fire Brigades Union strike today (10 July 2014).
The industrial action took place between 10am and 7pm as part of the ongoing dispute with the Government over pensions.
Contingency crews were on duty throughout the strike and we attended the following:
• 12:23 –small fire in a kitchen in Eastbourne – crews used breathing apparatus and a hose reel
• 12:34 –small fire in the open in Brighton (a mattress) – crews used a hose reel
• 14:01 –reports of a small fire in a window frame at home in Northiam – crews used a thermal imaging camera and a hose reel
• 14:18 –reports from South East Coast Ambulance of a man who had been accidentally electrocuted in Hove - crews attended to ensure public safety until UK Power could make the scene safe
• 16:14 -road traffic collision in Eastbourne involving two private vehicles – one person was taken to hospital
Pass it on and Stay SAFE for eight days of strike
Further strikes are due to take place next week and the public are urged to speak to friends and family to help reduce the need to call 999.
Smoke alarms save lives – fit them properly and test them regularly
Avoid distractions – whether behind the wheel, out and about or cooking paying attention helps keep you safe
Family and friends might need help – check in on them and share our advice
Escape routes should be planned and explained to everyone in your home
