Our Fire Stations
To serve the region and help keep the population safe, we operate 20 stations.
At midnight on 31 March 1948 the National Fire Service was disbanded, and on 1 April 1948 Buckinghamshire Fire Brigade came into service.
On 1 April 2018, to mark the 70th anniversary, former Station Commander John Bull published
“The Evolution of Buckinghamshire Village and Town Fire Brigades Into The Buckinghamshire Fire Brigade.”
John’s 30-year career with Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service started in January 1981 when he became a retained firefighter at Beaconsfield Fire Station.
He became a wholetime firefighter at High Wycombe Fire Station in 1982, transferred back to Beaconsfield in 1989 and worked his way up the ranks to become an ADO (Assistant Divisional Officer, later called Station Manager and now Station Commander) in 2004 before retiring in January 2011.
