New Media Line
The new number - 01905 368299 - will come into effect at 10am tomorrow morning.
As before, the media can call this number at any time to hear details of the latest incidents that the Service has been called out to, and the information will be updated at regular intervals by Fire Control staff.
The introduction of the new Media Line number is part of a wider project to move the Service's Fire Control from Worcester Fire Station in Copenhagen Street to Service Headquarters in Charles Hastings Way.
The old number (01905 725039) will not be withdrawn immediately but will be updated with a message for callers to re-dial using the new number.
