Eastern Fire & Rescue Service

Eastern Fire & Rescue Service is a small but dedicated team of Fire Marshall's/Firefighters. We also hold First Aid qualifications and some of our crew are ex-firefighters from Suffolk. We have years of experience of film set fire cover with major films across the south east of England.

We also have experience of covering big public events such as music in the park in Ipswich and the beer festival in Ipswich, We also join up with our colleagues from Norfolk who also cover these events alongside of us and who also have a very wide range of crew members from ex-firefighters from London and Norfolk.

The Land Rover Support vehicle:
