About Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service covers an area of approximately 500 square miles and a culturally diverse population of  2.8 million people.

With an international airport serving over 200 destinations, a major motorway network plus  over 200 train and tram stations Greater Manchester County presents some of the most  operationally varied challenges you will find. From modern inner-city developments to traditional mill towns, Greater Manchester is  made up of ten very different districts. 

Our vision is to make Greater Manchester a safer place by being a modern, community  focused and influential Fire and Rescue Service. 

We aim to provide the best emergency response we can to our communities – this is our  primary function, but our role is much broader than this. We have focused on prevention  and protection work over the last decade to try and stop incidents happening in the first  place, improving community outcomes in a variety of ways, educating and developing young  people and making fire station facilities available and more welcoming to the public.
