About the station
Mytholmroyd Fire Station is located in the centre of the village and the station serves a population of approximately 12,000 people and over 5000 dwellings.
The fire station was built in 1973 and re-built after the serious boxing day floods of 2015.
The village is currently under development with the Environment Agency’s Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme (on going until 2019) . This includes raising the height of the flood walls on the banks of the River Calder and Cragg Brook as well as demolishing homes and businesses on the Calder’s banks to widen the river.
The station holds an annual Open Day and crews also attend various open days/events in and around the community, as well as hosting regular charity car washes.
In April 2007, Robbie Coltrane entered the annual Dock Pudding Championship in the village and came 2nd.
