Watch Commander | Alex Watson

Watch Commander Alex Watson has worked at Ilkley Fire Station for 38 years. He is always happy to accommodate anybody who wishes to visit the station!

 

About the station

Ilkley is situated in the Wharfe Valley, at the southern end of the Yorkshire Dales. The former spa town is still renowned for its fresh air, moorland and beautiful countryside.

Ilkley Fire Station is situated on Little Lane, Ilkley. The station was opened in 1975 at its former site on Golden Butts Road. The station area borders North Yorkshire adjacent to Skipton and Harrogate.

Our crews are committed to providing the people of Ilkley with a first class fire and rescue service. The on-call firefighters at Ilkley attend fires, road traffic accidents as well as some more unusual incidents. For example, earlier this year they were called out at the request of the RSPCA to rescue a baby owl that had become trapped.
