About

The new station was opened on 7 October 2013, by Councillor Stephen Corrall, following demolition and refurbishment of the old station on the same site. Personnel from the station attend a full range of incident types, with road traffic collisions being the most prevalent. Historical research notes: ‘From the earliest records, Melton Town Estate had supplied the fire engines and paid the firemen’ in Melton, until this century’. ‘In 1868 the Estate agreed to purchase a new small hand fire engine and with this new engine came a new agreement with the firemen and in 1891 it stated the following: “We the undersigned agree to act as firemen under the direction of the town wardens, and to practice with the engine not less than four times each year.”’ Source: Melton Times, Thursday 20 February, 2014.
