Eastbourne Community Fire Station

Wholetime firefighters crew two pumping appliances, one Aerial ladder platform and a National response vehicle for terrorist incidents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Eastbourne's pumping appliances cover an area of approximately 3700 hectares with 84 hectares covering the seafront hotels. Eastbourne also serves the outlying villages of Jevington, Polegate, Stone Cross, Willingdon, East Dean and parts of Westham. The town has a high number of hotels and guest houses that represents an increased risk during the summer months, as does the Victorian pier. To the east of the town there is a large marina complex with its associated risks.
