Hanley Community Fire Station is a retained fire station serving the communities around Hanley and surrounding areas.
Crewing status: Whole-time and retained on-call
Vehicles: Pumping appliance and Damage Limitation Unit
Drill night: Wednesday, 17:30 - 19:30
As of January 2021, Hanley Community Fire Station is a shared station with Staffordshire Police's northern response team. This makes operational sense and will improve the financial position of both organisations and enable funds to be put back into frontline services to benefit people who live and work in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
The watch manager runs the station and manages the staff on their watch at their station location. They are the officer in charge of the fire appliances and lead incidents they attend.
The crew manager assists the watch manager in the delivery of their daily duties, including standing in for them in their absence. They ride on the fire appliance as a crew member but also have qualifications to be in charge of an incident when required.
