About

Slaithwaite Fire Station, built in 1962, is a retained station staffed by a mix of retained and wholetime retained personnel. It is situated approximately 4 miles from Huddersfield and provides fire cover for the Colne Valley. There is a varying degree of incidents from moorland fires and road traffic collisions in its own area as well as supporting Huddersfield in a bigger built up area. The team is made up of a station commander who is also responsible for Huddersfield in addition to a watch commander and a team of on call firefighters. The population is 18,594 and the area incorporates 7,906 dwellings. Personnel are involved in community groups for example scouts and guides who visit the station on a regular basis. The neighbourhood policing team are attached which is a valuable resource providing a police presence in the valley.
