Who We Are

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is here to make the communities within our area a safer place to live, work and visit.

Humberside Fire Authority is responsible for the fire and rescue service across the four unitary authority areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston upon Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, serving a population of almost one million people spread over 1358 square miles.

Fire cover is provided 24-hours a day, every day of the year.

All 999 calls are received by our Control room at Service Headquarters in Hull. Fire engines are then mobilised from our fire stations across the Service area. Each of the 46 front-line fire engines is equipped with state of the art rescue equipment and there is also a fleet of specialist appliances, which are used during road traffic collisions, water rescues and other specialist rescues. Firefighters are trained and ready to cope with a range of emergencies, not just fire. These include: road, rail or air crashes, flood, animal rescues, chemical spills and even terrorist attack. We strive to deliver a high quality service to our communities and as a result we have some of the best operational response standards in the country.
