Fire and Building Control

Cork County Council provides a fire and rescue service from 20 fire stations, which are located throughout the county. Over 200 trained fire fighters, who are members of the local communities in which they serve, are retained and on call to respond to varied emergencies which include fire incidents, road traffic collisions, weather induced events, hazardous material spills and assistance with medical emergencies. We respond to approximately 3,000 emergency calls each year across an area of over 7,300 square kilometres.
