Fire crews from Burgess Hill are keen to speak to residents this Thursday (February 23) as part of a safety survey.

Firefighters will be in Burgess Hill’s town centre from midday until 1pm in support of Safer West Sussex Partnership’s crime survey.

Crews will be seeking residents’ views, experiences and perceptions of crime in their area by asking them to place stickers on a questionnaire poster.

The survey aims to inform the partnership’s work in identifying communities and individuals who are vulnerable to crime and will assist partner agencies to ensure that support, intervention and resources are provided to those who are most at risk.

Made up of organisations including West Sussex County Council and Sussex Police, the Safer West Sussex Partnership works to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, ensuring that West Sussex remains a safe place to live, work and visit.
