London Fire Brigade

There are four fire stations within the London Borough of Ealing. Southall and Northolt have similar-sized station grounds and both house two pumping appliances. Southall attended some 700 incidents more than their Northolt counterparts in 2006/07. Ealing, with two pumping appliances, and Acton, one pump and two fire investigation units, are the other two appliances in the area. Interestingly, the ward of Northfield had over forty malicious calls made from it -more than twice as any other ward within Ealing. [http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/about_us/media/Ealing.pdf]
