Other Station Information
Ledbury Fire Station serves a population of nearly 10,000 people and is situated in the heart of the town on Bye Street. The town has a rich heritage of half-timbered buildings, but also has more modern buildings and is the home of close to 400 commercial premises and businesses.
Ledbury Fire Station is a retained fire station, so is staffed solely by on-call firefighters, who respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.
The station has a Scania fire engine, which is a first-line attack engine, carrying a crew of up to six firefighters along with firefighting and rescue equipment.
The Ledbury crew are trained to use water carriers, which are used during large scale incidents. In addition to this, they also act as a support crew for our Incident Response Unit which is available for national deployment, if required.
On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday commencing at 7:00pm
