A brand new fire station and training centre in Huntingdon for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS). The new facility is to be located on land adjacent to Percy Road, giving easy access to the A141, Huntingdon and the surrounding area. The new development replaces the current station on Hartford Road, which is no longer fit for purpose.
The new building represents a major upgrade that will provide CFRS with the essential modern facilities it needs for the vital role it fulfils in delivering a fire and rescue service to the 805,000 people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for years to come.
The three acre development will combine the requirements of a fire station and its support areas, with overnight accommodation for the firefighters working a nightshift, together with lecture rooms and additional changing facilities along with offices for support staff, including the occupational health team, health and safety team and operational support group. The purpose built training area will enable CFRS to simulate realistic exercises for the fire crews and include a four storey training tower, live fire training containers, as well as areas to support incidents involving water and motor vehicles.
