South Kirkby Fire Station

South Kirkby Fire Station opened on 16 January 2015. The station covers a population of around 11,000 and is close to the southern border of West Yorkshire. The siting of the new station, at South Kirkby Business Park, has been chosen for its good access to South Elmsall, Hemsworth, the A1 and surrounding areas. South Kirkby business park is a sustainable growth park with a percentage of the land being reformed to create public green open space.
