About

Idle Fire Station, situated on Highfield Road was built in 1956 and comprises offices, training and accommodation facilities and an appliance room that houses one water ladder fire appliance. The station is wholetime (24/7) and has 26 staff consisting of a station commander (who also manages Shipley), 24 operational firefighters and a station clerk who provides administrative support.

The station area covers the part of Bradford which includes the mainly residential locations of Thorpe Edge, Undercliffe, Wrose and Eccleshill, totalling 22,008 dwellings as well as the commercial areas of Five Lane Ends and Idle. The population of the area is 52,603.

In addition to the fire appliance the station is home to the Red Cross Fire Emergency Support Service (FESS) vehicle. The FESS vehicle is staffed through volunteers who are on call and respond to the needs of individuals who have had a house fire.

The station commander and station personnel liaise with the Neighbourhood Policing team, various Council Ward Officers and attend local neighbourhood forums. This partnership liaison, in addition to the work carried out by the arson task force, is aimed at protecting people by reducing the numbers of fires within the Idle station area.
