About

Located on Dewsbury Road, Hunslet covers the residential areas of Beeston, Cross Flatts, Holbeck, Middleton, Belle Isle and the new high rise developments that border the River Aire. There is a population of 60,895 and there are 27,157 dwellings within the area. Through community fire safety work there was a twenty percent reduction in accidental house fires last year. The team is made up of a station commander and 48 firefighters.

The station covers the heavily industrialised area that extends from Hunslet to Stourton. This results in a high workload of risk inspections to familiarise crews with potential hazards.

Notable developments within the area include the sports stadiums at Elland Road and South Leeds, The White Rose Centre, Bridgewater Place and the Royal Armouries.

Hunslet is the petrochemical firefighting station for West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service. All staff are trained in petrochemical firefighting techniques at the International Training Centre based at Teeside airport.

In addition to the two firefighting pumps Hunslet has the major foam and bulk foam units which are used both for the brigade and to support neighbouring fire authorities.

The station ground is bordered to the west by an inter city railway line, to the north by the River Aire, to the east by the M1 and also has the M621 running close to the station. The fire station was built in 1964.
