Other Station Information
Redditch Fire Station covers the 31 districts of the town with a population of approximately 90,000. The fire station has been in operation since 1964, making it one of the most established stations in the area and perhaps, due to its location, it is one of the most active in the Service, attending around 1,200 call outs per annum.
Redditch Fire Station is made up of both wholetime firefighters and on-call firefighters. The station is crewed by four wholetime watches, who are supported by a large pool of on-call firefighters that respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.
The crews have three fire engines at their disposal; a MAN fire engine, a Dennis Sabre fire engine and a Scania fire engine, with a compressed air foam system. These appliances are first-line attack engines that can carry a crew of up to six firefighters, along with firefighting and rescue equipment.
On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday commencing at 7.00pm
