"Tenbury Fire Station, which is shared with the local policing team in Tenbury Wells, covers a large geographical area and is well placed to give support to neighbouring stations in Leominster and Bromyard, as well as Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service. Tenbury is staffed by on-call firefighters who respond to emergency calls when needed. Crews are trained as water first responders, allowing them to attend water rescue incidents and perform tasks that normal fire crews aren’t trained to do."

Other Station Information

Tenbury Wells Fire Station is located in North Worcestershire and is part of the North District within the Service structure. The station covers a large geographical area, giving support to neighbouring stations at Leominster, Bromyard and Bewdley, as well as assistance to Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Tenbury Wells Fire Station 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. Furthermore, the crews are trained as water first responders which allows them to attend water rescue incidents and perform tasks that normal fire crews aren’t trained to do.

The Environmental Protection Unit (EPU), provides support to crews at incidents involving hazardous materials. Amongst other things, the EPU carries booms to protect rivers from the spread of pollution in event of a chemical spillage entering the water course.

On-call drill nights are held at the Fire Station every Monday commencing at 6:45pm.
