Newhaven Community Fire Station is part of Saxon House - a building we share with Lewes District Council and Sussex Police.
Officially opened in 2016, Saxon House includes a large open-plan shared office area with meeting rooms and also a large community, training and briefing room, with lift access. There is also a gym which can be jointly used by all staff in the building, which is important for both staff well-being and fitness levels.
Lewes District Council and Sussex Police operate a shared reception on the ground-floor, which will be open to the public Monday to Friday from 1000 – 1400hrs.
Wholetime and retained firefighters crew two pumping appliances. A specialist team for maritime firefighting is based here covering the port and the whole East Sussex coastline.
