Built in 1965, Hebburn Community Fire Station is located on Victoria Road West, Hebburn and covers the west side of South Tyneside Metropolitan Council and part of Gateshead County Council South.
The station covers several council wards; Bede, Primrose, Boldon Colliery, Monkton and Fellgate and Hedworth, Hebburn North and South as well as Pelaw, Felling and Leam.
As well as firefighting, the staff are also the main asset in undertaking a range of Community Safety (CS) activities that are primarily aimed at preventing fires and deaths and injuries in fires.
The station also houses a Northumbria Ambulance whose staff work within the Station.
The Community Safety Centre at the rear of the Station houses the Community Safety Team and the Hebburn branch of the Young Firefighters Association (YFA). A Secondary Control Room for the Service is also shortly to be installed within a separate building to the main Station.
