Cleveland Fire Brigade

Cleveland Fire Brigade covers the areas of Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees. The brigade has 15 stations across Cleveland.

The region has a mix of densely populated areas with high levels of deprivation and some more affluent or rural areas. Several of the wards within its boundaries are among the most deprived in the country.

The region has a major chemical production area, with 9,000 to 11,000 tanker movements a day, and 12 percent of national control of major accident hazard sites. The brigade also provides cover for two nuclear reactors, and a gas-fuelled power station at Wilton, as well as the Tees and Hartlepool Port Authority and shared coverage of an international airport.

HMICFRS’s role in inspecting this service

For over 160 years, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary independently assessed and reported on the efficiency and effectiveness of police forces and policing, in the public interest.

In summer 2017, HMIC (now HMICFRS) took on inspections of England’s fire & rescue services, assessing and reporting on their efficiency, effectiveness and leadership.
