The service is retained like most fire stations in the country.
Mobilising is via a paging system and we aim to be on the road in about 4-5 minuites of receiving a page.
Our main appliances is a Class B Scania custom build by Siodean Teo in Galway. This unit is slightly longer than a normal unit which allows a through section in the front locker. This allows us carry some longer equipment such as ‘stabfasts’ which are used to stabilise vehicles. The appliance is fitted with a Compressed Air Foam SYSTEM (CAFS) which allows us to use either foam or water as a fire fighting medium. This unit is also fully equiped for dealing with firefighting and road traffic collisions, carrying a full range of stabilisation and cutting equipment, and safety equipment associated with road incidents.
We also have a second Class B Scania we use for carrying larger more specialised equipment such as a platform and Air lifting equipment. This is fully equiped with a water based pump and can take over at more minor incidents to allow our main appliance to be available.
We also Water Tanker with 10,000l of water available to any incidents in the county, and a 4WD Pajero for off road operations and logistic support.
The aim of this page is to provide a contact point and some information about the station. Feel free to ask any questions.
