Additional Information

The Fire Station was built in 1956/7 at a cost of £12,500 by contractors Powell and Lillywhites who also built Havant Fire Station around the same time. The Chairman of the County Council Sir ALan Lubbock opened the station on 27 July 1957. Appliances in operation at the opening were a brand new 'S' type Bedford Pump Escape, a Commer WRT, Royal Enfield Motorcycle which was used as a despatch rider as the crews did not have radio comms then as we do now. The Officer in Charge of the Station then was Station Officer Caplen.

The Station has been involved in numerous major incidents over the years. In the last 15 years incidents such as Uppark house near South Harting (35 Pumps), a High Rise Office Block at Basingstoke (25 Pumps), a Scrapyard at Buriton (15 Pumps) and a Factory Fire at Farlington (25 Pumps).

Petersfield attends a number of varied calls each year and they average between 300 and 350 calls each year.
