Arnside fire station is staffed by On-call Firefighters and houses one fire engine.

A particular problem for the Arnside crew is rescues from the notorious quicksand in and around the Kent estuary. Over the years many people have been rescued by the fire and rescue service when they have underestimated the danger of walking along the beaches. Although a relatively quiet area, a significant risk the station has to be prepared for is the Cumbria coast rail line, which, in addition to passenger and normal freight services, carries nuclear flasks en-route to West Cumbria and Sellafield.

 

Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service carry out Safe and Well Visits; please use the link below for more information.
