The team is made up of a station commander who also has responsibility for Castleford fire station. The team is staffed by 13 firefighters. The population of the area is 21,064 and there are 8,888 dwellings incorporated within the area.
The station personnel are working hard to make the public as safe as possible through strong well forged community links performing school visits, group talks and extrication demonstrations providing education on community safety and road traffic collisions. As part of the newly formed Local and District Risk Reduction Team the aim is to target our resources to areas identified as high risk and reduce that risk to a tolerable level to improve service delivery.
