The emergency services are busy preparing for the 25th consecutive year of staging this popular event on Western Lawns seafront over the weekend of 7th & 8th July. The event has become a favourite in the local calendar and gives the opportunity for visitors to meet members of the emergency services and view the equipment used in 999 response vehicles. In addition, Eastbourne’s new state of the art Tamar class lifeboat will be seen for the first time in a demonstration of rescue techniques at sea. 

A full timetable of scenarios and demonstrations run throughout the weekend which gives members of the community the rare chance to see the work of the emergency services at close quarters. For full details and programme of events visit 999 display 2012
