New Community Fire Stations

The second phase of the PFI Project will be completed this year and will provide state of the art facilities at Burton, Rugeley, Chase Terrace, Leek, Loggerheads, Penkridge, Lichfield, Kinver, Codsall, Stone and Longton by the end of 2016.

This is to supplement the first phase which provided new Community Fire Stations at Rising Brook, Sandyford, Tamworth, Uttoxeter, Cannock, Hanley, Burslem, Newcastle and Kidsgrove. Alongside this community facilities at Cheadle, Wombourne, Longnor, Biddulph and Gnosall were fully refurbished.

The old stations were proving costly to maintain and the new facilities suit the requirements of a modern proactive fire service by interacting with the community that we serve. All stations have been designed with a community facility and state of the art operational facilities. Stations crewed around the clock are also to include fitness facilities that can be used by supervised groups. Community groups will be able to use the facilities and the newly designed stations will also allow for more community safety activities to take place. The new stations will sit at the heart of the community and have been designed to be inviting and welcoming to the public.

Our community rooms are available free of charge for relevant community activities that focus on areas such as health, education, housing and employment and crime and disorder.

The project has been funded by the Government through a private finance initiative (PFI), and a consortium (a group of several companies) called Fire Support has been appointed to take forward the project. Find out more about Fire Support http://www.staffordshirefire.gov.uk/790.asp.
