We have borrowed most of the text from the Save Clapham Station website, which you should visit here, because who can tell you better than they can just what we stand to lose? But of course we know that fire can not only destroy every possession we most hold dear, but also kill. A fire station is an integral part of our community along with every man and woman who staffs it and keeps us safe. Once this station is lost it is gone forever, so join us in the fight to keep it!
CLAPHAM HAS BEEN SERVED BY A FIRE STATION FOR 150 YEARS DON’T LET ALL THAT GO UP IN SMOKE.
Other fire cuts in London will have a DETRIMENTAL IMPACT on fire cover in this area with other fire stations being stretched much further. This will inevitably impact on ATTENDANCE TIMES IN CLAPHAM.

  • 25% of fire cover in Lambeth Borough will disappear forever
  • West Norwood Fire Station is being rebuilt 2 miles further away from Clapham, which will also affect the attendance times for your area.
  • Lambeth Borough has the most residential fires in London! Attendance times and local knowledge is of critical importance in all emergency situations. A fire doubles in size every minute.
