Fire stationsEdit

The service has 25 fire stations, which are operated according to the following crewing systems:

  • Wholetime – full-time firefighters are at the station 24/7 and run on watches which change every 12 hours
  • Retained – on-call retained firefighters are called to the station via pagers. Therefore, they are not always on station
  • Day-manned – full-time firefighters are in the station during the day but not the night

The list below shows each station together with its number and crewing system.[1]
