Sussex 4×4 Response is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation of volunteers that offers various services to Local Authorities, Emergency Services and other Agencies within Sussex.

Our Sussex charity becomes an essential service in winter if snow and icy conditions grind Sussex to a halt. The group provides vital back up transport to the NHS, Sussex Police and council workers who need to get to and from work in treacherous conditions.

We are ready to deal with bad weather providing reliable 24hr transport and logistics when other rescue services are stretched, Sussex 4×4 response offers a comprehensive local service to doctor’s, paramedics & local authority care trusts in getting people where they need to be.

Amongst the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU’s) Sussex 4×4 Response has in place include those registered with Sussex Police, East & West Sussex County Councils, NHS Sussex, SECAMB, and Other Sussex Hospices.

We provide reliable transport in adverse weather that is constantly available, the team is made up of highly trained volunteers who give up their time and skills and the use of there 4×4 vehicles in emergencies to serve the community.

All our trained and fully insured Response personnel are members of the charity they officially carry out Response work for us and have the skills needed for off road/severe weather driving, First Aid, navigation and communications.

Within Sussex, during winter our responders will be out carrying out various tasks in the local community.
We provide reliable transport to paramedics, nurses and doctors to their relevant places of work also to transport doctors and nurses on there palliative care patient rounds day or night.

We also provide many of the local hospitals and hospices in the area with assistance transporting staff to and from hospitals and essential personnel or supplies to areas that would be hard or impossible to reach in normal vehicles.

Driving in snow is what we are best known for but we are also experienced in other emergencies like floods and off road driving getting officials from other agencies places normal cars wouldn’t dream of reaching.

Our Responders are dispatched, tracked and monitored by our team of support members who, while not necessarily 4×4 drivers themselves, add a valuable contribution to the operation of the charity at these times.

We are the only official group operating within Sussex that is part the 4×4 Response network for the whole of the UK.
