Community Fire and Rescue Stations

Croxteth Community Fire Station is situated on 

Storrington Avenue and covers the Norris Green and 

Croxteth areas. The Merseyside Fire and Rescue 

Authority's Training and Development Academy is 

also based on this site.

The station is the base for MF&RS's Search and Rescue 

Team and as such houses a number of specialist 

National Resilience appliances and Teams. These 

include an Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Team 

including specialist dogs, an International Search

and Rescue Team and Flood Rescue Teams.

These appliances, along with the highly trained

crews, are available for deployment to incidents 

nationally and internationally. The station is co-located 

with the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust's 

Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and the 

benefits of the collaborative approach extend from 

the training opportunities to the joint working at 

operational incidents.
