About

The current fire and rescue station sits on a site which first occupied a fire and rescue station in 1939. Since this time, the station was demolished and rebuilt in 1978, opening again in 1981 and more recently has undergone a total refurbishment in 2014. This most recent refurbishment was carried out by Kier Construction at a cost of £2.5million and provides a state-of-the-art facility which boasts new firefighters accommodation, a training house with smoke simulation, a new appliance room with space for three fire engines, public parking with disabled spaces, renovated training yard and a new reception area at the front of the fire and rescue station. The station attends a wide variety of incidents due to the nature of the split between rural and urban areas, as well as the network of major trunk roads that are in the district. The station has an active focus on community safety with regular attendance at local community events, as well as promoting good fire safety practice via Home Fire Safety Checks.
