414 03 23 – Fleet and Call Signs (April 2024)

Date of Request

March 24


Dear Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service,

I would like to ask the following questions:

1. Is the information listed on your website (https://www.hwfire.org.uk/about-us/the-fire-service/fire-stations/) regarding fire stations and their vehicles correct as of 2024?

2. Has the service migrated to the National Call Sign Project? E.g. station 52’s first pump would have the callsign 52P1 (I do not want the actual callsigns)

3. How many Environmental Protection Units does the service currently operate?

Yours faithfully,


Good Morning
