The North Lincolnshire area profile reflects a diverse rural, urban and cultural environment surrounded by rich agricultural land that has always provided a living for its population.
Associated risks extend from historic old towns to numerous mixed industries including general fabrication, medium factory units and chemical plants. These key industries, vital to the UK economy are capable of annually producing thousands of tons of flammable and toxic chemicals. There is also the impressive industrial giant of TATA steel that is central to the UK steel sector and has major influences worldwide. As such, North Lincolnshire requires an emergency response model that befits a complex and diverse environment.
To ensure the delivery of an effective emergency response North Lincolnshire, the Service provides a 24 hour emergency response model utilising 6 On-Call stations and a mixed Full-Time/On-Call station at Scunthorpe.
Although we exist to react swiftly when things go wrong, it is vitally important to recognise the work of the protection and prevention teams. They work very hard to reduce the number of occasions when response teams are needed and also create an environment to allow people to escape quickly and safely. This includes working directly with community groups, health partners and the council to assist vulnerable people and ensure people are educated to prevent fire or accidents. We also ensure that our many public buildings such as hotels, concert halls and care homes are safe for use and inhabitation.
The Full-Time firefighters are dedicated to the safety of people in North Lincolnshire. We will ensure that we are as professional as possible and inclusive to everyone in the area. Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is an issue we can assist with or if you recognise an area of risk to the community which we can mitigate. Prevention really is the key.
