The Fire Brigades Union will take industrial action, for five hours on Saturday 19 October. It is the second period of industrial action in the national dispute over pensions. East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service say they have contingency plans in place.
We remain fully committed to keeping our communities safe throughout this dispute. Our contingency plans will provide emergency cover but this is inevitably below our usual level. We are asking members of the public to do what they can to reduce the risk of fire and limit the number of incidents that we are called out to.”
