2011 East Wittering Fire Station
Being a part time firefighter at East Wittering station means you have lots of responsibilities. Firefighters carry out a range of duties from emergencies in the home and on the roads, as well as visiting children in schools and nurseries to educate them about fire safety.
In 2011 the station at East Wittering had a new fire engine. It is stored at the fire station which also has a base for local police and community wardens.
The firefighters go to college to learn about fire safety and every Wednesday they meet and go through drills. They also learn to use the truck and boat.
The firefighters have a pager to take home, this alerts them when there is an emergency and they have to get to the station as quickly a they can. Most of them have other jobs.
