London Road Fire Station was built to replace Nottingham's Central Fire Station, which closed after serving Nottingham for almost eight decades.
London Road Fire Station is in the city district and serves Nottingham City centre and its surrounding communities and is home to four watches of Watch Managers, Crew Managers and firefighters, as well as a Station Manager who is based at both London Road and Stockhill Fire Station.
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, who occupy 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. The ALP has been used at a large number of incidents both large and small.
