Collingham Fire Station, which can be found on Baptist Lane, was built in 1969.
Collingham is a retained station with 15 staff in total who commit their spare time support their community on an 'on-call' cover system, with one Watch Manager, two Crew Managers and 12 Firefighters.
These staff provide cover on a twenty-four hour basis each day of the year; crewing one fire appliance that allows us to cover Collingham and other communities. Station-based staff regularly take part in charity events, such as hosting a car wash, bike rides and other events.
Collingham firefighters also like to be seen out in the community and show their faces at events whenever they're invited, like May fairs, village and country shows or any other local event that would like support.
The crew drills every Wednesday night, either on station with their facilities or at another station or even off station to practise in more rural environments.
