London Road Fire Station
LocationLondon Road, Nottingham
London Road Fire Station was built to replace Nottingham's Central Fire Station, which closed after serving Nottingham for almost eight decades. The station is ideally placed to meet the Risks within the city district and support rescue operations across other risks such as the River Trent and major transport links.
London Road Fire Station is in the city district and serves Nottingham City centre and its surrounding communities. The station is staffed 24-hours a day, 365-days a year by crews from four Watches (Red, White, Blue, and Green) working 12-hour shifts. Also based at the station is a District Prevention Officer who facilitates community prevention.
The station has several green initiatives in place, including photovoltaic panels on the roof to generate energy, energy-efficient LED lighting, and automatic cut-out heating when the appliance doors open. The station also accommodates Nottingham City Council's Emergency Planning Team, which occupies the top floor of the station. The station is also home to the Aerial Ladder Platform (ALP), which is used to fight fires from height and support rescue operations.
