Newcastle is the most diverse district in the area we cover. It includes large amounts of residential property, ranging from isolated pockets of depravation to substantial commercial and industrial premises.

People are most at risk from fire while in their own homes and there are around 111,000 homes in Newcastle.  All four community fire stations within the district work together and share resources to effectively target the known risks.
