Welcome to the UK Fire Stations website
It is hoped that you like the fresh layout which includes extra features such as the status of each station and the type of appliances at each one. . If there is any information that you disagree with, please let me know via the ‘Contact us’ page.
A new feature for 2021 is the link on the header to the UK Fire Stations Facebook page where I will upload pictures and information additional to what is on the website. You will also see I have created links to Facebook and Twitter for individual station accounts as well as UKFS now having its own account for each.
Also included on the 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 continues to go from strength to strength with only one station not featured in the UK but hopefully this will be rectified in 2021. The only station missing is the Isle of Muck and I haven’t been able to get on to the island yet due to the restriction on day visitors. One of the challenges faced is the continual rebuilding or new stations with 2020 stations already featured such as St Helens and West Ashland.
There are now 2955 stations featured of which 813 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 a picture 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 and can still be photographed, 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!
