Chance to Look at Plans for New Fire Station

Guildford residents have the chance to take a look at the latest plans for a new fire station at an open day tomorrow, Wednesday, April 18.

A spokesman from Surrey County Council said: “The event will give people the chance to learn more about the project to replace the current fire station in Ladymead with a state-of-the-art facility, which will include better training facilities and improved working areas for firefighters.

“The latest plans reflect views given by visitors during a previous open day in December last year.”

Kay Hammond, Surrey County Council’s cabinet member for community safety, said: “The new building will need to reflect the changing demands made of Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. These days our firefighters are called to more road accidents than ever before so it is important they have excellent training facilities to hone their rescue techniques.

“Because seconds count in an emergency, the new fire station will be cleverly designed to allow firefighters to get out of the door and on their way to an incident as quickly as possible. By investing in a new fire station in Guildford we are investing in people’s safety.”

The open day will take place at Guildford fire station, in Ladymead, GU1 1DL,  tomorrow between 3pm and 7.30pm.

Visitors will be able to talk to people from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, Surrey County Council and other organisations involved in the project. The open day will also include plans for the wider Ladymead site.
