Kempston Community Fire Station

Our firefighters are both wholetime (full time) and on-call (retained), living and working within six minutes of the station and alerted by a pager when ended.

Kemspton is the base for a Special Rescue Unit which assists in the release of casualties trapped in vehicles following road traffic collisions. 

One of our Fire Cadet units are based here, meeting weekly during school term times on a Monday between 19:00 – 21:00. You can get more information about joining our Fire Cadets here.
