Date Added: 31st August 2010

A new look Community Fire and Ambulance Station, which uses the latest green technology to reduce energy consumption, has been formally opened at Mill Green Road, Haywards Heath.
Originally built in 1963, the station now incorporates:

  • A new two-storey extension to the existing building providing a larger appliance bay for emergency vehicles
  • A new IT suite
  • Additional office space for the fire safety team and ambulance personnel
  • A new training room

The station is shared by West Sussex County Council Fire and Rescue Service and South East Coast Ambulance Service. It is also home to the Red Cross' Fire and Emergency Support Service vehicle.
The station was opened by Peter Evans, County Council Member for Public Protection. He said: "The refurbishment means the station will be able to offer the community a significantly enhanced service."
County Fire Officer Max Hood said: "These much needed improvements ensure it is fit for purpose for emergency personnel.
"The new IT training facility also means firefighters can now play an even more active role in promoting fire safety to residents and businesses in Haywards Heath."
The station will be opening its doors to the public for its annual open day on Saturday, September 4 between 11am and 4pm. Firefighters, paramedics and police will be on hand to offer practical safety advice and information.
