Our History

SEA Fire was set up in Eastbourne by Andrew Stuart, a former Fire Fighter, in May 1989 with the intention of working in partnership with East Sussex Fire Service to bring a professional approach to Commercial and Domestic Fire Safety to Sussex. Andrew had previously served in the Midlands and had been on the Committee of the Midlands Branch of the British Fire Services Association as well as on the Committees of the Warwickshire and West Midlands Fire Liaison Panels (where he was Press and Public Relations Officer) as well as the Staffordshire FLP. He was also Chairman of the Midlands Branch of the Industrial Fire Services Association for many years and, for which, he was awarded Honorary Life Membership.

A good client base was established and Andrew gained fame as a Consultant to Film Companies as well as being interviewed live by Sky TV News during the Windsor Castle fire as well as both Sky and BBC during the Penhallow Hotel fire. He has done several live interviews for local TV and radio, including a live 6 hour commentary for Sovereign Radio during the Eastbourne Pier fire.

The business eventually became a Limited Company which then made the mistake of entering into a partnership with another Company. Sadly, this partnership was seriously flawed and did not last and Andrew resigned in July 2017 as he no longer trusted them. It took a few weeks to get set up and re-start, but with customers flooding back. It just showed the trust that they had in SEA Fire who, as SEA Fire 2000 Ltd, were the only Fire Protection Company which, at the time, were awarded the prestigious “Buy With Confidence” accreditation by East Sussex Trading Standards Department.
