Oakham and Rutland


It is believed that the original Oakham Fire and Rescue Station was located on Mill Street in Oakham before being moved to Brooke Road, on the site of the current car park adjacent to the present fire and rescue station. The station in its current location was opened on 28 October 1981 by Colonel T.C.S Haywood OBE JP, the then Lieutenant of Leicestershire. A few years ago an extensive refurbishment of the fire and rescue station took place and due to this, the crew had a temporary base until the fire and rescue station was re-opened by Councillor Steve Corrall on Thursday 24 October 2013. The new Oakham Fire and Rescue Station is now seen as a modern fire and rescue station fit for purpose. Personnel from the station attend a full range of incident types, with road traffic collisions being the most prevalent.
