East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service remains alert to the risks of a terrorist incident and is well prepared in case of a large scale emergency.
The threat to the UK (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) from international terrorism is severe.
ESFRS works with other agencies and organisations including Sussex Police, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and South East Coast Ambulance to ensure there would be an effective response if needed. This includes carrying out training exercises and playing an active role in the Sussex Resilience Forum.
We would also be able to call on national resources to assist if additional help were needed.
The safety of all our communities remains an absolute priority and the message to the public is to remain vigilant.
The Anti-Terrorist Hotline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All calls and information are treated in the strictest of confidence.
To report something suspicious please call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
