Wrexham is a wholetime station with four wholetime watches (Blue, White Green and Red) and one Retained Duty System (RDS) watch.
Geographical Area covered:
To the North and East Wrexham station covers the area up to the border with Cheshire and to the South half way towards Johnstown. To the West Wrexham station covers half way towards Mold.
Sites of Risk:
The original station was part of Denbighshire and Montgomeryshire fire service and was situated in Guild Hall Square in Wrexham which is now a shopping centre complex. A new station was built on Bradley Rd in 1954/55 and remained in operation until 2016.
Wrexham's brand new Ambulance and Fire Services Resource Centre (AFSRC) on Croesnewydd Road was completed on 4th March 2016.
The Welsh Ambulance Service and North Wales Fire and Rescue Service jointly invested more than £15 million in the purpose-built facility, which includes an eight-bay fire station, a six-bay ambulance station and top-of-the-range training facilities. The new centre on Croesnewydd Road replaced the existing fire station on Bradley Road in Wrexham, and the existing ambulance stations in Chirk and Wrexham.
Staff started operating out of the AFSRC on 13th April 2016.
The AFSRC delivers both improved facilities for staff and a better service for the public in the area. Operating from one base allows greater co-ordination when it comes to responding to incidents and makes the best use of resources for both of organisations.
Permission for the two-storey facility on land near Wrexham Maelor Hospital was granted by Wrexham Council's planning committee in May 2014, and a Full Business Case was later approved by Welsh Government.
The ambulance accommodation incorporates a fleet workshop, make ready facility, a six bay garage, offices for fleet staff and management, debrief room and a deployment base for response staff.
The fire accommodation includes a local community safety office, an eight bay garage, gymnasium, state-of-the-art training house and drill tower with a road traffic collision training area. Facilities like the rest room, dining room, communal kitchen, main office, locker room, meeting and training rooms will be shared by both services.
