Wetherby Fire Station, built in 1957, is situated in the centre of the small market town and houses one operational fire appliance that is staffed on the day crew system. The team is made up of a station commander (who also manages Killingbeck) and 14 operational firefighters who work a day crewed/close call shift pattern. Firefighters are on station through the day and then provide cover from home on evenings with all staff living within close proximity to the station, providing 24 hour cover, 365 days a year.

The station area has a boundary with North Yorkshire and crews regularly attend incidents with the neighbouring Fire and Rescue Service.

Due to the close proximity of the A1(M) motorway, Wetherby attend a high number of road traffic collisions and are highly skilled in the extrication techniques needed at this type of incident.

Wetherby personnel remain committed to preventing fires, protecting people and property, responding to emergencies and helping the people of West Yorkshire.
