He showed me round the station and we had a long chat with him and the Green Watch commander, Mark Price about how the service is adapting to meet the changing demands and risks. House fires have - fortunately - become much less common, thanks to changes in how we live, regulation of flammable materials in furniture, a reduction in smoking and also a sustained effort by the fire service to fit smoke alarms and help us stay safe at home.

Aside from the blue light work, the station will also start cycle patrols in targetted areas - this helps to build connections with the local community and to help spot risks like dumped rubbish before they become serious issues. They will also continue to carry out prevention work - directly with vulnerable residents and also working with our local schools. The fire service is changing how it responds and how it meets our needs. They'll be there when you need them.
