Here’s your chance to gain an insight into the life of a firefighter and the workings of an operational fire station. Tour Pomona Fire and Rescue Station’s engine bay, apparatus room and training room. Replacing the original fire station commissioned in 1956, the state-of-the-art Pomona Fire and Rescue Station was opened in mid-2015. Operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it accommodates a Captain, two Lieutenants and seven firefighters. The building was designed for functionality and to embrace the heritage character of the town and adjacent local heritage building. It features a double appliance bay which houses Pomona’s fully-equipped Type 2 Urban Pumper Tanker and a service fire truck capable of a wide range of field duties. It also accommodates a training room and office, out-door training platform and RCR training pad (Road Crash Rescue). This auxiliary station services many local and rural communities and responds to a variety of incidents including road crashes, grass and wild fires as well as structure fires.
