The personnel work professionally, striving towards helping all members of the public to be safe within their own homes and whilst out and about in the community.
The team is part of the Wakefield District Group and works a system known as Day Crewing. There are 12 firefighters based there and they live in a house next to the station on the days they are at work.
Working closely with partnership agencies, personnel aim to target resources to areas identified as high risk and reduce that risk to a tolerable level.
Personnel are committed to reducing the number of fires and road traffic collisions in the area by meeting and educating people through school talks for the young, fairs and galas, community group talks and full extrication demonstrations to highlight the importance of being safe.
An excellent relationship has been created with the local high schools through the Young Firefighter Training Scheme which focuses on educating pupils, instilling discipline and developing team work.
