Before the temporary move to the disused law courts Southport Community fire station had a total of 4 machines, 2 whole time (staffed 24/7) and 2 retained (a combined platform ladder and a third fire engine)

Three of these machines have now been replaced by a CPP (Combined Platform Pump) to compliment the brand new “Scania” received a few weeks ago.


It is widely thought that the “missing” machines have allegedly been axed, and won’t be coming back.
