Cambridge: New Fire Station Opens

The newly refurbished fire station in Cambridge has had a ribbon cutting ceremony, to mark the return of fire crews.

The multi-million pound, state-of-the-art building on Parkside Place has been built as part of developer Grosvenor's project. 

It includes 99 apartments built over the station.

Cambridge fire crews moved out of the old station there early 2011 and they've been at a temporary site in Coldham's Lane since. 

Staff and bosses hope the new facilities will keep the response times up.

Sir Peter Brown, the Chairman of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough's Fire Authority, said: "It's absolutely fantastic. 

The people of Cambridge city should be proud of what they've got here.

The staff do a really good job and they've got a wonderful facility now. 

I look forward to my continued work to make sure we maintain the level of service we already have."

Brenan Morgan, the Station Commander, told Heart: "Coming from the old station, which was probably past its sell by date, and moving into such an iconic building has been great for the staff and it's great to be back in the centre of Cambridge."
