Community Fire and Rescue Stations













Kirkdale Community Fire Station opened in 2012.




As well as housing two normal fire engines, it also 

houses some of the Service's specialist appliances 


including the Environmental Protection Unit, Incident 

Command and Control Unit, and Bulk Foam Units, all 


of which are ready to be deployed throughout the 

region as required. Kirkdale is the Primary Response 

Station to support operational hazardous material 


(Hazmat) incidents within Merseyside.




Kirkdale crews also support CBRNe (incidents involving 

Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or 


explosive materials) - related incidents, both regionally 

and nationally.




The Youth Engagement team is also currently based 

at the station, having moved from their former base 


at Derby Road at the end of 2014.
