Retford Fire Station
The station now has a much more modern feel with cost efficient technology which eliminates two thirds of the running costs when compared to the Brigades previous home.
The highly-efficient purpose-built fire station, with solar panels, LED lighting and a state-of-the-art heating system stands proudly on the corner of Wharf Road adjacent to Retford Town Centre.
The station also has a modern Green Wave System alerting and changing all traffic light systems to Green to allow for emergency vehicles to respond more quickly to emergency situations.
As well as housing its existing wholetime and retained crews, the station has become a new northern training hub for the whole of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, with an upgraded Road Traffic Collision training area and a brand new ‘firehouse’ for breathing apparatus, confined crawl space and sewer training facility.
In addition the station will become the northern hub for the Service’s vehicle maintenance function. Other features include three appliance bays, a gym and a training and community room.
