We are delighted to confirm in December 2013 we were selected as a new framework contractor on the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Framework and have since been awarded our first couple of projects.
Refurbishment works are already underway at Birkenshaw Headquarters and also a £1.4m new build fire station is due to start at Rothwell in the next month. Once the station has been rebuilt Rothwell will become a day crew only site, manned by firefighters between 8am and 5pm, with a requirement that they live within 5 minutes of the station for incident response at night.
Councillor Golton said:
Local people and councillors fought a hard campaign last year to keep the fire station open. This is fantastic news that the facilities in Rothwell are to be modernised.
