Grange fire station is staffed by On-call Firefighters and houses and houses one fire engine and a Wildfire Land Rover.

As Grange is a coastal town on the estuary, over the years the station has attended numerous rescues of people and also animals that have become stuck in the quicksand. The busy main A590 trunk road runs through the station area, consequently, road traffic collisions form a significant part of the firefighter's duty today. Firefighters also receive specialist training to deal with wildfire incidents.

As Grange is a coastal town on the estuary, over the years the station has attended numerous rescues of people and also animals that have become stuck in the quicksand. In addition to this the proximity of the sea often leads to some localised flooding. The main A590 trunk road runs through the station area and as this is one of the most notorious roads in the county for road traffic collisions, this is a significant part of the firefighters duty today. 

The area contains:

 

• 2 heritage sites, Stott Park Bobbin Mill and Rusland Tannery

 

• 1 Grade I Listed and 11 Grade II listed Buildings

 

• 10 Sites of Specific Scientific Interest

 

• Vitagrass Farms Ltd is a Site Specific Risk

 

• Grange flooding risks are mainly in the area of Windermere Road which often floods in response to intense rainfall, the combination of ground water, surface water and surcharging water courses with approximately 26 properties at risk, with a mix of residential, Bed and Breakfast accommodation and commercial premises
