Humberside Fire Authority is responsible for the fire and rescue service across the four unitary authority areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston upon Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, serving a population of almost one million people spread over more than 2,000 square miles.
Fire cover is provided 24-hours a day, every day of the year. All 999 calls are received by our Control room at Service Headquarters in Hessle. Fire engines are then mobilised from 30 fire stations across the Service area. Each of the 47 front-line fire engines is equipped with state-of-the-art rescue equipment and there is also a fleet of specialist appliances, which are used during road traffic collisions, water rescues and other specialist rescues. Our Firefighters are trained and ready to cope with a range of emergencies, not just fire. These include: road, rail or air crashes, flood, animal rescues, chemical spills and even terrorist attack.
As well as responding to emergencies we provide preventative services to the public to help them prepare for emergencies, reduce the likelihood of emergencies happening and reduce their impact if they do happen. This work includes home safety visits to vulnerable people and the fitting of safety equipment where needed.
