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 Shift, who provide cover 24/7; Wholetime Day Duty, who provide cover from 07:00-19:00 every day; and the On-Call duty system, whose firefighters crew one appliance in the day and two appliances at night and respond to emergency calls whenever they are needed.
The station has three Scania fire engines, one of which will shortly be replaced by a new-style Compact 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
