Mollington £3m fire station officially open

The new £3m Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service station has been officially launched.

Bob Rudd, the chairman of Cheshire Fire Authority, was present to cut the ribbon to an audience featuring both guests and local councillors.

Once the speeches were over, guests witnessed a demonstration delivered by firefighters before observing the equipment and vehicles on the station’s premises.

The public were also invited to make their way around the base once the official opening was over.

Councillor Rudd said:

“We take great pride in the quality of our personnel and in their commitment to serving the public and the communities of Cheshire.

“For me as chair of the Fire Authority, I take great pride in seeing local people compelled to give something back to keep their friends and neighbours safe.”

The fire service said that the fact that the new station building is close to the M56 was always in line with a plan to reduce response times in Warrington and the wider Halton area.

As well as housing basic fire appliances, it is also home to numerous specialist vehicles designed to be used in risks in Ellesmere Port and Cheshire, including industrial complexes and heritage buildings.

The service said that the goal is to further reduce injury and death from not only fire, but any emergency they are required to tend to.

Equipment aside, the new fire station is an impressive feat in itself and its largely thanks to builders in Chester, who once again proved their worth to the area.
