Maryport fire station is staffed by On-call Firefighters and houses two fire engines. 

The dock and harbour area has been revitalised over recent years, with the introduction of an aquarium, museum, yachting marina, fish handling plant and new residential properties, all of which bring their own inherent risks. Other risks associated with the town and station area include schools, several residential homes for elderly people, residential properties, guest houses and hotels and a general increase in tourist activity. The large volumes of traffic on the predominantly 'B' type roads and the busy A596 trunk road running through the station area results in significant numbers of serious road traffic collisions. Open farmland brings the danger of barn fires and other farm related incidents, such as livestock rescues.

The fire station was purpose built in 1967 and houses two fire engines, with an adjoining drill  yard and drill tower. It is staffed by On Call firefighters who provide crewing for the two fire engines.

The town of Maryport is located on the west coast of Cumbria on the Solway Firth, just  outside the Lake District National Park and has a population of approximately 11,500 people.

 

The area contains:

  • 2 Grade I listed buildings and 4 Grade II listed buildings

  • 2 Sites of Specific Scientific Interest

  • No Site Specific Risks identified

  • Row Beck flows through Dearham and with many areas suffering from poor surface water drainage the risk of low level flooding is common in the Maryport area

Although most of the original large factories have closed, these have been replaced by smaller factory units. The dock and harbour area has been revitalised over recent years, with the introduction of an aquarium, museum, yachting marina, fish handling plant and new residential properties, all of which bring their own inherent risks. Other risks associated with the area include those posed by residential properties, guest houses and hotels and the general increase in tourist activity. With large volumes of traffic on the predominantly 'B' type roads and the busy A596 trunk road running through the station area, results in significant numbers of serious road traffic collisions. There are six schools, as well as several residential homes for elderly people located within the town. Open farmland brings the danger of barn fires and other farm related incidents, such as livestock rescues.
