Anglesea Street Fire Station

Anglesea Street Fire Station provides 24 hour fire cover to the city of Cork for 365 days per year and also houses the Fire Brigade Headquarters for Cork City. This combined building provides the administrative and technical support for both the Fire Service and the Fire Prevention section. It provides office space for the Chief Fire Officer, Senior Fire Officers, administration staff and operational areas for firefighters over 3 floors.
