Fire and rescue in Northumberland

We provide fire and rescue cover to the county of Northumberland with the long-term aim of improving the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of those who live, work and visit Northumberland.

Central to this is the prevention of fires and other emergencies, with a result of reducing death, injury and damage to property.


The fire and rescue service area covers 5,026 square kilometres (1,941 square miles) with a population of 316,028 people.

The service covers 148,008 residential dwellings and 11,687 non-domestic properties. To make Northumberland safer, we have 15 local fire stations.
