Reynoldston Fire Station provides emergency cover and support to the village and the surrounding communities in Gower. Station personnel utilise a range of equipment including a Rescue Pump which gives firefighters greater and more immediate capability in dealing with a wide range of incidents. Road Crashes are a serious risk in the area so the Rescue Pump carries a wide range of extrication equipment needed to release casualties trapped in motor vehicles.

Rescue pumps are equipped to deal with traditional firefighting and many other types of rescues such as flooding, mud entrapment and a wide range of other environmental emergencies.

The station is also equipped with a Landrover for the Co-Responder partnership with the Ambulance Trust, whereby personnel assist the Ambulance Service by providing emergency medical care in the event of life threatening emergencies.

The Landrover in conjunction with a Fire Fogging trailer is also used for firefighting on the many acres of Heath and Common Land in Gower all of which contain very sensitive habitat which has been designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Prevention is a very important part of the modern Fire Service, your local firefighters are able to visit your house to provide free home fire safety advice and will supply and install free smoke alarms to keep you and your family safe.
