Station Commander

"Our crews of wholetime and on-call firefighters are at the heart of our Redditch community which has a population of around 90,000. We are eagerly awaiting the completion of our new combined Redditch Police and Fire Station which is currently being built on the existing site and is set to open in late 2024."

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 two Scania fire appliances and one Iveco Compact at their disposal. These appliances are first-line attack engines that can carry a crew of up to six firefighters, along with firefighting and rescue equipment. The station also has an enhanced Water First Responder capability.
On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday commencing at 6.30pm.
