Who We Are

We are responsible for delivering a fire and rescue service to the 805,000 people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

We operate from 27 fire stations, which vary in status from being staffed 24/7, 365 days a year, to being completely on-call, where firefighters are on call day and night and are alerted to incidents by a pager. The Fire Service Headquarters is based in Huntingdon and houses the senior management team, the combined fire control room, central operational teams and many of our support staff, who work in a variety of professional roles to support frontline activity.

We are accountable to the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority and our responsibilities as an emergency service are set out in the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004 and the Civil Contingencies Act 2004.
