Riverside Fire and Rescue Service started back in 2010, at the time we had a single fire appliance and a handful of operational staff and even less support staff who attended a few small events and shows throughout the year.
The demand for our services began to grow as did the need for a bigger and more skilled fleet of appliances and staff to work from them.
Over the years RFRS have faced some challenging situations but with our amazing team, determination and trust we have overcome every one of them.
Now in 2017 we have a fleet of 9 fire appliances and support vehicles which between them have a whole host of skills and uses. We also have a larger and more diverse crew of operational staff and support staff who are training to become operational. Not only do we have a bigger team, we also offer an even wider variety of fire safety services.
As for the shows, we attend bigger and more popular shows with even more appliances this allows us to show the public what we can offer them and it also helps us get to know new customers.
