Community Fire and Rescue Stations

Allerton Community Fire Station - On February 26, 

2015, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority confirmed 

the closure of Allerton Fire Station following a three- 

month consultation process. The neighbouring stations 

to Allerton - Old Swan, Toxteth, Belle Vale, Speke and 

Garston and Kensington, will provide cover across the 

Allerton station area.

Allerton’s fire appliance will be relocated

to another station and crewed on a wholetime 

retained basis. This involves wholetime firefighters 

providing cover to enable the appliance to be 

mobilised to major incidents or during periods

of exceptionally high demand on a delayed 

recall to duty.

Staff at Allerton will be moved to surrounding stations.

The decision was taken as part of a plan to make 

savings of £6.3 million in 2015/16 in response to further 

grant cuts to the Authority budget in addition to 

savings of £20 million since 2011/12.
