Community Fire and Rescue Stations

Formby Community Fire Station, opened in 2013, covers 

mainly rural risks from Ainsdale to Hightown but with 

considerable suburban residential concentrations, an 

operational and training RAF base, Altcar Barracks and 

Rifle Range, specialist nursing homes, several residential 

care homes, some light industrial/retail estates, a 

permanent traveller caravan site, static caravan parks 

and road and rail risks running through the length of the 

Station area. Of particular note is the busy Formby 

bypass which is subject to several high speed collisions 

each year.

The Sefton coastline has 13 square km of pine forest 

forming the National Trust and English Heritage 

conservation areas, which are of special scientific 

interest with some fragile animal and plant species. 

The area is used throughout the year by visitors and 

is particularly busy during the summer months right 

along the coast. Due to significant water shortage 

the area can have significant wild land fires.

The North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust now 

shares this building. There are additional facilities that 

can, by arrangement, be used by our local partners 

and community groups.
