Other Station Information

Hereford Fire Station responds to incidents in around the city of Hereford, which is predominantly an urban environment with a number of heritage buildings. The River Wye bisects the city and is used by locals as well as a large number of tourists.

The station combines three duty systems who work alongside each other. The wholetime firefighters provide 24 hour emergency cover on either a four day duty system or a self-rostering system, known as Day Crewed Plus. There is also a retained duty system that is made up of on-call firefighters, who respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.

The station has a MAN fire engine, a Dennis Sabre fire engine and a Land Rover off road firefighting vehicle. The station is also equipped with a Scania ultra heavy rescue appliance, an aerial ladder platform for rescues and firefighting and the incident response unit, which responds to incidents involving hazardous materials.

On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Thursday commencing at 7:00pm.
