    The Ark Project - flood preparation and response centre

    The effect of severe weather and flooding has become a major feature for the Humber region over the past ten years. It is anticipated that this will only worsen over the coming decades. The tidal surge of December 2013, which first affected the East Yorkshire coast, was the highest ever recorded tide level in the Humber estuary and led to around 1,100 properties and hundreds of businesses flooding in the area.

About

Central Fire Station was originally established in 1927 and was rebuilt after the Second World War, making it the oldest fire station in the Humberside area. It is crewed by wholetime firefighters and is home to vehicle workshops. There is also an admin building on the site which was built in 1963-4. The station area covers a high number of retail premises, old buildings and museums and housing. It also covers Hull Royal Infirmary. The River Hull runs through the station area and the River Humber borders the station to the south.
