About

Bingley Fire Station, built in 1972, is situated to the north of Bradford and covers Bingley town centre and the surrounding villages which incorporate 12,416 dwellings. The area, which has a population of 29,154, includes Manniwells industrial estate, Castlefields industrial estate, Damart mill and Wilsden Autos. In addition the Bradford and Bingley RUFC, Bingley St.Ives Golf Club and the Five Rise shopping centre are within the town centre. The area has several large public attractions including Bingley Myrtle Park’s annual three day music event, Bingley Five Rise locks, Bingley Three Rise Locks, Bingley Market and Arts centre and the famous Dick Hudson’s public house. Motorway networks and railways that pass through the area are the A650 Aire Valley trunk road, Bradford to Keighley railway line stations at Bingley and Cross Flatts, the Leeds/Liverpool Canal and the River Aire/Ireland Bridge.

The station is staffed by a station commander who also has responsibility for Ilkley Fire Station and the station clerk provides administrative support to both stations. Personnel also consists of 24 wholetime firefighters who aim to reduce the levels of all fires and other incidents by fire prevention initiatives, protecting the community from other dangerous situations and responding to calls for help.

Bingley and the surrounding area is statistically a safe place to live. However community awareness is being developed by visiting schools and informing the children at an early age. Personnel work together with community groups and partner agencies to share information to make Bingley safer.

Bingley personnel also provide a water rescue capability for the whole of the county. The water rescue capability is soon to incorporate a flood response capability. This will see the addition of a 4×4 vehicle and a trailer with a boat based at the fire station alongside the main fire engine.
