Covid-19: How ESFRS can help you during the pandemic

We are working hard to ensure that you and our communities remain as safe as possible during Covid-19.

Our firefighters are ready to respond to emergencies, and we are continuing to provide advice and support to protect homes and businesses from fire and other risks.

We are part of the Sussex Resilience Forum, which brings together a whole range of services and organisations.

Remember if you need us, call 999 in an emergency or contact us on 0303 999 1000 or email enquiries@esfrs.org.  

Business Safety

It’s a particularly tough time for businesses and we have drawn together advice and support which may help you.

Home Safety

While we may not be able to visit you at your home in person to offer fire safety support, we are still here to help with advice and support over the phone.

We’ve reached thousands of people already and are here should you want to speak to us.

Staff and community volunteers are also checking in on those who may be feeling isolated or alone during COVID-19. Please feel free to call The COVID-19 emergency phone number on 01323 462299 or email covidvolunteeringsussex@esfrs.org 

Helping Carers

If you are a carer, perhaps for a family member who has lost their independence through illness, disability or age, we offer a one-hour course covering fire safety advice and safety tips including bedtime routines and escape plans.
