Around 5pm today (5th September 2017) firefighters from East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) will be carrying out a training exercise at Bournes Rye site on Rye Harbour Road.

Bournes have been based in Rye since 1875 and operating at their Rye Harbour depot since 1991. We were approached by local firefighter Gary Bourn to ask for our support in providing a facility for the exercise that helps ESFRS teams to practice their skills in a simulated environment.
Bournes would like to re-assure all our clients, friends and neighbours in Rye that are concerned on seeing any activity on site this evening that this is not a real emergency and that Bournes own services and operations are un-affected.
