Lymm fire station and safety centre
The building of a new fire station and safety centre in Lymm was part of a comprehensive plan to improve response times across Cheshire, Halton and Warrington.
The plan, which involved the building of five new stations, was subject of a widespread public consultation.
The new fire station houses a number of specialist vehicles due to its close location to the motorway network on Cliff Lane, Lymm, WA13 0SP.
Safety Central will deliver educational programmes that aim to reduce accidental deaths and injuries from fire, at home, on the road and in the community. This will help the Service fulfil its statutory duty to prevent fires and other emergencies, as well as supporting work towards the wider health, wellbeing and community safety priorities of local communities.
The programmes will be targeted at schools, new parents and the carers of older and vulnerable people and will cover the hazards that they are most likely to encounter. Learning will take place in a series of purpose-built indoor scenarios designed to be realistic, immersive and interactive including:
a lifesize three-bedroom house
a typical Cheshire ‘A’ road meandering through an urban and rural setting
a courtroom, A&E treatment area, shop, police custody suite and e-safety lab
a farm, railway station, urban park, forest, canalside and open water
a 360 degree immersive virtual learning zone
These settings can also be used for operational training.
