Beverley is a market town in the East Riding of Yorkshire noted for its Minster and architecturally significant religious buildings. The town is 1300 years old and is home to Beverley Racecourse and the oldest grammar school in the country, Beverley Grammar School. The fire station opened in 1982 and is also home to our Occupational Health and Health and Safety teams and is also the CPU headquarters in the East Riding. Beverley Fire Station covers the town of Beverley, and consists of many villages in a mainly rural location with associated road networks. The River Hull cuts through the station area.
From East Riding
Welcome to The East Riding of Yorkshire Community Protection Unit (CPU) area of the website. The East Riding is the largest single Fire District in England covering some 240,768 hectares (930 sq mi) and has a population of 334,673. The geography of the East Riding and the diverse range of risks across the district can and does present some challenges for the Fire Service. The diversity of risk ranges from the larger market and seaside towns where the bigger centres of population are located to very remote villages and communities. There are also the seasonal fluctuations in population, the significant road network and the larger industrial sites to consider when preparing and planning for emergencies.
In order to respond effectively to this diverse range of risk and keep our communities safe we operate 13 fire stations located across the county with a 24/7 365 days a year response capability. We rely heavily on on call Firefighters who are members of the local community that are trained and equipped to provide a professional front line emergency service back to the community.
Many people will not be aware that we do far more than put fires out and respond to other emergencies, in fact we do an increasingly significant amount of work in communities on prevention and protection (building safety regulation) in conjunction with partner agencies to increase the safety of the communities and businesses in the East Riding. We have dedicated prevention and protection teams, working in the community and with partners on a daily basis in a very targeted way to prevent fires occurring in the home or the workplace and provide advice on safety.
All of our work is dedicated towards making East Riding a safer place to live, work and visit. It is our intention to further develop all aspects of our service to meet the specific needs of the communities we serve.

To enable us to assess the dwelling risk within our communities, our area is divided into 41 groupings of around 20,000 residents; we call these ‘risk regions’ and there are 41 such risk regions within our Service area, varying in geographical size. The dwelling risk rating is based upon the casualty and fatality rate per head of population, within each risk region.
Our Response Standards tell you how quickly we will have a fire engine in attendance at an incident. They are based on domestic risk areas, assessed as high, medium or low risk.
Two fire engines will be mobilised to dwelling fires and Road Traffic Collisions. The first will be in attendance within the following times, on a minimum of 90% of occasions.
• High Risk Area 8 Minutes
• Medium Risk Area 12 Minutes
• Low Risk Area 20 Minutes
• Road Traffic Collision in any Risk Area 15 Minutes
The second fire engine mobilised to a dwelling fire or a Road Traffic Collision will be in attendance within 5 minutes of the first fire engine arriving at the incident, on a minimum 80% of occasions. We are proud to say that, despite the standards we set for attending incidents across the service area being some of the most challenging in Great Britain, we consistently exceed our response targets.
