North West Leicestershire District
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service has an Integrated Risk Management Plan which constantly assesses the risk to the communities of Leicestershire, and responds accordingly by altering this plan to provide the most effective service to all residents in the county. As part of this plan it was recognised that a fire and rescue station was required in the Castle Donington area and so the search for a suitable premise/plot of land began. A site was identified on Beverley Road, which is within the curtilage of East Midlands Airport. The lease on the building was acquired and, after extensive refurbishment, a brand new fire and rescue station was opened at 97 Beverley Road, Castle Donington, in August 2015 (there had been a fire and rescue service presence on the site, in temporary accommodation, for approximately one year prior to this time). Castle Donington Fire and Rescue Station responds to a wide variety of incidents and provides strategic cover for the increasingly busy motorway network. They also work closely with East Midlands Airport Rescue and Firefighting Service, providing immediate back up for any incidents that occur on the Airfield. The personnel at Castle Donington are trained in swift water rescue and provide a response for any water incidents in the North of the county. Castle Donington Fire and Rescue Station has 12 wholetime personnel, who work the Day Crewing Plus crewing system, providing cover 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition there is a District Manager, who has responsibility for all stations in North West Leicestershire.
