Community Fire and Rescue Stations

Crosby Community Fire Station areas includes Crosby, 

Seaforth, Waterloo, Blundellsands and Litherland. It is a 

heavily urbanised area with all types of housing stock 

from large Victorian mansions to high rise blocks. 

There are several factory estates, a British Gas storage 

facility, the Royal Seaforth Container Terminal, 

Gladstone Docks and a growing Freeport area.

The Port is expanding its container terminal (Liverpool 

2), which will create more work and prosperity in the 

area. There is significant road traffic throughout the 

station area and there are four commuter rail stations 

including the main rolling stock repair depot at Hall 


The Sefton Coastline runs the entire length of the 

station area with the unique risks associated with 

beaches and water. Further life risks include several 

residential care premises, small to large hotels, seven 

multi-storey tower blocks and a private hospital.

Some of the building stock dates from the 1800s and 

is of historical interest.
