Other Station Information
Worcester Fire Station is located on the outskirts of the city centre in Great Western Business Park.
The station has three duty systems that work out of the station; wholetime, who provide cover 24/7, Day Crewing Plus that provide immediate cover on an innovative self-rostering system and the retained duty system that is made up of on-call firefighters, who respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.
The station has two Scania fire engines and a Dennis Sabre fire engine as well as an aerial ladder platform and a water rescue vehicle. These vehicles, along with highly trained staff, allow the crews to deal with a range of fire or rescue related incidents in both the Worcester area and across the wider service.
There is also a training rig based at Worcester Fire Station which allows for advanced training exercises that further prepare the crews for the many different types of fires and rescues they face on a regular basis. The building also has provision for the Young Firefighters Association and has multi-use lecture facilities.
On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday commencing at 7.00pm
