Grange Fire Station
Kents Bank Road
Grange over Sands

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.
