Diversity and inclusion

It is our ambition to create a truly inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and respected.  By respecting and valuing each other's ideas and contributions we can create an organisation that performs even better.


A higher level of performance results in better services for our communities.  This means providing services that meet people's different needs.  Only then can our vision of making people's lives safer and reducing risk be achieved.


"What's in it for me?"

"What's in it for me?" supports our aim to develop a workforce that is ready and able to understand each other, are engaged in the strategic priorities of the Service and consequently be ready to serve the needs of our communities.


Brighton Pride 2015

We attended Brighton Pride again this year to help mark the 25th anniversary of one of the biggest events on the south coast. 

From its birth last century to the present day, Brighton Pride has meant many things to many people. It has played its part in changing attitudes and promoting acceptance and equality, and of course that being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender; whoever you are and however you identify yourself; is something to be proud of.

We were part of the parade this year and drove an appliance through the procession to show our support and encouraged many of you to join the march, along with other fire and rescue services from the region. 

Our Community Contact Point was at the Preston Park celebrations and we spread our important safety messages to as many people as we could. Once again, we worked with East Sussex and Surrey Fire and Rescue Services at the park.
