The fire station at Workington has four fire appliance bays, extra storage space, a community room, young firefighter and improved training facilities and office accommodation for the Workington Locality management team.
"The official opening of the new Workington station is a real landmark moment in the history of Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service as it's the culmination of a major project that has delivered five new fire stations across the county.
"The stations are a step forward for the Fire Service in terms of the facilities at our disposal and they also bring benefits to communities as they are specifically designed for community use."
