Other Station Information

Whitchurch Fire Station ground covers an area of just over 53 square miles and is predominantly rural with large areas of farmland. Between Whitchurch, the surrounding villages and scattered communities, the population of the area is approximately 6,000.

Whitchurch Fire Station is a retained fire station, so it 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 that can carry a crew of up to six firefighters along with firefighting and rescue equipment. There is also a restricted access vehicle available for the crew to use.

On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Thursday from 7pm until 10pm.
