Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Station opened on 7 November 1989. It was relocated from Abbey Street to Fairfield Road, and the newer station was officially opened by HRH the Duke of Gloucester. Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Station responds to a wide variety of calls covering a vast range of risk. This includes many rural farms, busy roads (B6047, A6 and A304), medium rise properties, care homes, hospitals, a train station, canal routes including tunnels, an ever increasing number of domestic properties, as well as industrial units over several business parks. Within Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Stations turn out area is HMP Gartree which is our only CAT4 risk. Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Station respond to around 220 fire calls a year, and this number is increasing with the addition of Emergency First Responding on station – Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Station are taking a range of calls from EMAS and Market Harborough are one of the stations currently taking part in this project. Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Station sits on the border with Northamtonshire, as a result of this geographical location we work with Northampton Fire and Rescue Station supporting them on calls in the immediate surrounding area. With the Hose Layer (S36W2) being housed at this station, we can respond anywhere in the county/country. Personnel from Market Harborough Fire and Rescue Station have been to several other stations within Leicestershire to assist with Water Strategies’ and appliance familiarisation presentations.

Take great care on the roads around #market Harborough. They have not been gritted. A6 and ‘McDonalds’ roundabout is very slow. @ATCLeicester @HarbCSP please stay at home. There are accidents occurring. https://t.co/dpn0RZJYlR LFRSmktharb photo

TRAVEL: B6047 Leicester Road, Market Harborough - partially blocked by lorry stuck in snow approaching Alvington Way roundabout - poor driving conditions in the area too

TRAVEL: Delays & queuing traffic on A6 southbound in Kibworth due to broken down vehicle near Kibworth Business Park

With ice still on many local roads and the temperatures dropping to below 0 again in the next couple of hours, we are advising only driving if absolutely necessary.
Stopping distances can sometimes be as much as 10x the normal and controlling a vehicle becomes difficult. https://t.co/ax8HMBJclI
