Bradford Fire Station

Bradford Fire Station is situated on Leeds Road and was opened by Mr Gerry Sutcliffe MP on 8th June 2007, replacing the fire station on Nelson Street in Bradford city centre.

Serving the wards of City, Bolton and Undercliffe, Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor, Eccleshill and Manningham, the station’s aim is to provide the best service to our local areas. By working with community groups, delivering fire safety education in our schools and visiting households to conduct Safe and Well checks, the station strives to deliver a holistic service to meet the needs of our community reducing the risk to life, property and the environment from fire and other emergencies.
