Additional Information

St Mary's Fire Station covers all the city centre plus some of the surrounding suburbs. The ground covered is extremely diverse ranging from highly commercial and industrial areas close to the city centre, moving out to the local housing authority estates and private housing. Some of the risks on the Station ground are West Quay Shopping Centre, the St Mary's Football Stadium and the Leisure World Entertainment complex. The Station is also on the immediate pre-determined attendance for Southampton International Airport and the BP Hamble Petroleum Depot. 

St Mary's currently has a P6, P7, ALP and a Small Fires Vehicle and assists the whole of Hampshire with missing persons incidents. 

The last major fire on the station ground was Shamrock Quay Boat Yard in November 1998 where some 22 pumping appliances were needed to fight a large fire which caused over 5 million pounds worth of damage.
