London Road fire station

20171013J London Road fire station visit
A year now since it was opened by Lilian Greenwood MP.
Visited with co-Councillor Nicola Heaton and saw that the building is working well for the Fire Brigade.
The Ambulance Service use the facility and the Police may soon share the same office too.
On the top floor, the City Council’s emergency planning team have their office and the command centre for emergencies.
Some souvenirs from the old Central fire station have been brought over, including the two lions – one alert, and one at home and sleeping – to represent the then two watches (red and blue). There are now four watches – green, white, blue and red – who showed us around.
