In 2018/2019, every fire and rescue service in England and Wales was subjected to a statutory inspection by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HIMCFRS). The inspection investigated how well the service performs in each of three areas. On a scale of outstanding, good, requires improvement and inadequate, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service was rated as follows:
|Effectiveness||Requires improvement||How effective is the fire and rescue service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks?|
|Efficiency||Good||How efficient is the fire and rescue service at keeping people safe and secure from fire and other risks?|
|People||Requires improvement||How well does the fire and rescue service look after its people?|
ESFRS operates 24 fire stations that are divided into three groups: West Group, Central Group, and East Group. The fire stations are crewed by wholetime firefighters, retained firefighters, or a combination of both.
