Guisborough Fire Station is located in a residential area of the town on one of the main thoroughfares. Guisborough is a historic market town built around the ruins of an Augustinian Priory founded in 1119. The town has a population of over 17,000. The town is prosperous and is growing year on year. It lies on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors and the area is popular with walkers and the mountain bike community.
Guisborough Fire Station is staffed utilising the Retained Duty System. Local residents are also on call firefighters living within 5 minutes travel time of the station. Retained Duty Firefighters usually have other commitments in their local community and wider area, but give a commitment to respond to emergency calls when needed.
There are two appliances stationed at Guisbrough, a traditional fire appliance and a land rover with a towed bowser which is a resource utilised for grassland fires across the Brigade area.
