Welcome to the 'new' UK Fire Stations website
After five successful years of providing pictures of stations and appliances, it was decided to revamp the website.
It is hoped that you like the new site which includes extra features such as the status of each station and the type of appliances at each one. Unfortunately a lot of the stations have not been populated with this information so far but as time permits, the information will be collated. If there is any information that you disagree with, please let me know via the ‘Contact us’ page.
Also included on the new website is a facility to search for station by name or part of name or address.
I would also like to place on record my thanks to all station personnel who have helped in the positioning of appliances and especially the retained personnel who have attended their station in their own time.
The site is now entering its sixth year and the site continues to go from strength to strength with only three stations not featured in the UK but hopefully this will be rectified in 2020. One of the challenges faced is the continual rebuilding of stations with 2019 station rebuilds already featured such as Coventry, Lincoln and Chagford.
There are now 2929 stations featured of which 788 are old stations. There are also 148 stations listed from outside of the UK (with the majority being in Southern Ireland) of which 6 are old stations.
The Brigades page has also changed where a picture can be seen of each station with the active stations shown initially and the old stations lower down the page. Also at the top of each brigade page there is a map facility which can show all station locations or current or old stations separately.
The main feature of each station page continues to be galleries section, showing photographs of the stations from different angles. Where possible, photographs have also been added for appliances.
Also, for easier movement between pages, if you click on a Brigade badge wherever it appears, it will take you back to the previous page.
As previously, there is a section for brigades that are not within the UK on the BRIGADES page. A large section of the photographs featured are from Southern Ireland and I would recommend a visit to the External Links page. Have a look at the Fire Ireland link, which features many aspects related to the Fire and Rescue Service in that country.
If you have a website that you would like me to place a link to on this page, please let me know via the Contact Us page and I will be happy to oblige!
I appreciate the number of people who are viewing the site and if anybody has any information to the location of old stations that are not featured on the site, I would appreciate it if you could contact me by email using the Contact Us page.
This website is dedicated to the memory of my father
1927 – 1993
Without his help, guidance and wisdom, my time as a fireman and this site would not exist. Always remembered!
