Bletchley Fire Station
Sherwood Dr, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, MK3 6DT
Drill nights for Bletchley Fire Station's retained firefighters are held on Thursdays, starting at 7.30pm.
Bletchley Fire Station is committed to improving public awareness of fire safety and helping combat deliberate fires by actively supporting Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service's Arson Task Force. Our fire safety work includes targeting areas and groups who are known to be more vulnerable to fires, to advise, formulate fire plans where appropriate and fit smoke alarms.
Other work includes working with young people and other groups, Key Stage 2 and 3 in schools and supporting community safety work, such as taking part in community projects during the summer holidays and around bonfire night.
The station was built in 1964/65 by Willis & Co at a cost of £110,000. It was opened at 9am on Sunday 31 October 1965. Divisional Officer Bailey was the officer in charge, responsible for 39 staff working on a group shift system. The basement area of the station was used by Civil Defence.
Nowadays, the station is equipped with two rescue pumps - one crewed by whole-time firefighters, and the other by on-call firefighters.
The station is home to one of the county’s two British Red Cross Fire & Emergency Support Units, crewed by specialist volunteers, who care for people who have suffered the effects of domestic fire, flood or similar incidents. The other one is based at Marlow Fire Station.
The area served by the station is bounded by the H8 Standing Way in the North, Walnut Tree and the V11 Tongwell Street in the East, and the Brickhill villages and Soulbury in the south.
