Construction has recently begun on the new Wakefield Fire Station, to replace the current fire station which was built in 1963. The project will see the existing fire station demolished and a smaller fit for purpose and more energy efficient replacement will take its place with much lower running cost. The new station will have two bays adjoining the welfare accommodation which will include a kitchen/dining space, office spaces and a gym area and is due to open in the Summer of 2020.
