Renovated HQ for Shropshire Fire and Rescue opens

The renovated fire headquarters for the Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service will be opened later today.

Fire Minister Bob Neill will be in Shrewsbury to officially open the premises in St Michael's Street, Shrewsbury.

He will also officially re-open Shrewsbury fire station, which is on the same site, but has been replaced with a renovated and larger building.

It replaces "dilapidated" buildings, condemned as uneconomical to repair.

The renovations have been funded from government funds and efficiency savings.

In September 2011, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service unveiled their new control room in Shrewsbury which links up fire authorities in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
