Oadby and Wigston Borough Council


Wigston Fire and Rescue Station was built in the 1950’s. The station is typical of its kind with its curving roof, jettied first floor and flat-roofed flanking appliance bays. More than 40 operational and three non-operational personnel are based at Wigston Fire and Rescue Station providing an emergency response service 24/7 to the local area. Typically Wigston Fire and Rescue Station attends a large variety of calls due to its location on the outskirts of the city and its close proximity to the more rural south east of the county. As a station, our crews not only attend emergencies but also carry out a great deal of work in the community, whether it be testing the fire hydrant at the end of your street, giving fire safety advise to your children at school or attending various community events and businesses in the Oadby and Wigston area. Occasionally, when required, our crews are requested to assist other agencies such as the police, ambulance and the RSPCA. Large incidents are not so common however, the crews at Wigston will be mobilised to assist, particularly as the station has a Command Support Vehicle based there. This appliance is used to help manage the larger or more complex incidents where many different resources are in use.

This is an incident we attended yesterday, one caravan well alight.

Reported by a lone person using their outdoor exercise time. However we also saw a big group on bikes totally ignoring social distancing rules!

Please stay at home and stay safe for us!!

Imagine the matches are your family and friends and the fire is COVID-19 spreading! With just one match ‘socially distanced’ the fire stops spreading.

Very sad day. The joint woking of all emergency services was outstanding.
