About Macclesfield Fire Station

Currently at Macclesfield fire station there are two frontline appliances.  They carry modern equipment for fighting fire, rescue from road traffic collisions and chemical and environmental protection.

We also have a HP (hydraulic platform) here at Macclesfield.  This special appliance enables crews to work at height.  It is also used for launching the service boat.

Macclesfield is staffed by two Watches, Charlie and Delta, with seven personnel on each watch.

The Watches rotate every three days and work from 7.00am - 7.00pm.

Macclesfield also has 13 on-call/part-time fire fighters. If you would like to find out about becoming a fire fighter: On-call/part-time firefighters
