Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service is the statutory fire and rescue service for the area of Central Scotland, Scotland.


Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service(CSFRS) was formed in 1975 when control of fire services was passed from local authorities to the new Central Region Council. When the Central Regional Council was abolished in 1996 the three new unitary authorities each took part in the running of the service. Originally called Central Region Fire Brigade in 1975, changed in 1996 to Central Scotland Fire Brigade and in 2004 it changed to Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service to reflect the change in the operations it carries out.


The service operates 17 fire stations.

Fire Cadets

CSFRS operates 5 fire cadet units at Balfron, Larbert, Tillycoultry, Bo'ness and Killin. These are very successful and have provided great opportunities for the many cadets since 2002 when the first unit (Balfron) opened.
