All Community Volunteer applications are currently on hold due to Covid. We want to ensure we protect our Volunteers, the Community, and Fire Service Colleagues.
We would like to thank our existing volunteers for their continued support, hard work, and the time they have given to both the Service and their community.
The Service continues to monitor the position during this time, and we will continue to keep our web pages updated on any opportunities that may become available and how you can assist East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service.
- Taking part in large-scale joint training exercises - simulated rail crash, simulated fire in a secure residential center, simulated fire in underground tourist attraction. Volunteers act as injured casualties/concerned bystanders/interfering relatives, helping to make the scenarios as realistic as possible.
- Electric Blanket Testing - help set up the venues in advance, welcoming attendees, take details of attendees, generate HSV referrals.
- Summer Fun and Safety Days - assisting organisers set-up, welcome parents and children, help run sports and arts activities, generating HSV referrals.
- 999 Emergency Services Weekends - assisting ESFRS with running their stalls e.g., badge-making stall, Black Museum stall, helping children to sit in the fire appliances, generate HSV referrals.
We are very proud that our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and have varying abilities and are able to assist at many events, as well as fundraising activities.
