Community Fire and Rescue Stations














Bootle and Netherton Community Fire Station, opened 

in 2013, is situated on the main arterial route from 

Liverpool City Centre to the north of the borough.




The station has one appliance responding to large 


residential areas such as Thornton, Ford, Litherland, 

Netherton, Maghull and Lydiate. Risks in these areas 

vary from residential and rural to large factory estates, 


retail parks, care homes and specialist homes for the 

elderly and children with disabilities.




Heavy goods and light electric rail lines, plus the 

heavily used Southport commuter route (A565), the 


A5036 which carries significant container traffic to the 

Seaforth container terminal and the busy 


convergence of the M57 and M58 at Switch Island, 

makes a very busy road and rail network.




Youth engagement, including the Prince's Trust Team 

programme and Duke of Edinburgh schemes, 


operate from this community fire station. There are 

facilities that can, by arrangement, be used by 

partners and community groups. North West 


Ambulance Service NHS Trust are also located on 

the site.
