Amersham Fire Station was officially reopened on Thursday 26 March 2009 following its £500,000 redevelopment. A commemorative plaque was unveiled by Jenny Hopkirk, Vice Lord-Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire, and Watch Manager Paul Lillycrop, who retired in 2015 after serving at the station in Woodside Road for 47 years.
Mrs Hopkirk said: “Amersham Fire Station has been serving the community from this site since the 1950s, and the work carried out has brought the facilities well and truly into the 21st century. The continued commitment of everyone here is much appreciated by everyone.”
The station’s new fire appliance – a nine-litre Scania 94D Rescue Pump – was also on show. Mrs Hopkirk said: “The total cost of this fire engine, including all the latest firefighting and rescue equipment it carries, is something in the region of a quarter of a million pounds – although of course fully laden with its cargo of firefighters it’s absolutely priceless.”
