Pevensey Fire Brigade was formed in 1912, the station was situated behind the Smugglers Public House. This was in use until the second world war when the station was built on the end of the then Memorial Hall. The present Fire Station was built in 1967.

The station area covers 3,506 hectares, mainly rural and serves the outlying villages of Pevensey Bay, Normans Bay, Westham, Stone Cross and Hankham. It also provides support to Eastbourne and Bexhill.

Who works at the Station?

We have one fire appliance crewed by Retained Duty System firefighters who live or work within five minutes of the fire station.  Retained Duty System (RDS) Firefighters are ordinary people that combine their day jobs with being on call for Fire and Rescue situations and emergencies. When the call comes in, they drop what they are doing and become part of the East Sussex Fire & Rescue team. It’s a huge commitment, but an immensely rewarding way to serve the community, keep the public safe and earn an extra income.
