On Tuesday 24 February 2015,
a brand new Community Fire Station was opened in the village of Bootle
in West Cumbria. Originally situated on the main A595, I believe
the old fire station was a converted barn. The size of the appliance
room necessitated the allocation of Compact Water Tenders a selection of
which can be seen on the Library Page. With a tiny watchroom
and a loo, there were few other facilities available there.
Now the new station comes fully equipped with Communty Room, Gymnasium, Shower, B.A. room to name but a few of the facilities. Access and Egress is no longer restricted, giving the fire-fighters a facility of which they are justly proud. There are also facilties included for other agencies.
Gymnasium - with more equipment to be delivered.
