Aylesbury's new state-of-the-art Fire Station opened in April 2005, and replaced the previous facility in Cambridge Street, which was in use for more than 30 years.
Aylesbury Fire Station provides full-time fire cover for Aylesbury and the surrounding villages in co-ordination with part-time retained stations. Appliances from Aylesbury attend incidents as far apart as the county boundaries with Bedfordshire in the east to Oxfordshire in the west, and from the Whitchurch area in the north to the Princes Risborough area in the south. They also attend large incidents further afield as necessary.
On 2 March 2009, Aylesbury Fire Station became the permanent new home of Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service's Urban Search and Rescue crews.
The area is predominantly rural, with small clusters of industry and some very historic and valuable properties included, such as Waddesdon Manor. The road network is substantial and the station attends numerous road traffic collisions each year, these forming a large proportion of the operational response.
Community safety now forms an increasingly large part of our daily routine, and new initiatives are constantly being sought with other agencies to help prevent fires, accidents and other risks to the community.
In September 2006, Aylesbury Fire Station took delivery of two new Scania Rescue Pumps. Click here to see a picture of them.
In March 2009, the Urban Search and Rescue team relocated to Aylesbury. Click here to find out more about it.
