Llandrindod Wells Fire Station
Llandrindod Wells is a firmly placed ‘hub’ of Wales and hive of activity with a population of 9,789. In addition to the originality contained in the local arts and craft shops, there is a variety of products and services offered on and off the main streets. Llandrindod Wells truly has a character born of its ‘Victorian heyday’.

The Fire Station covers Llandrindod Wells town, and the surrounding communities of Disserth and Tregoed, Llanbadarn Fawr, Llangunllo, Llanyre and Crossgates. The remaining Station area is predominantly rural. The main risk for Llandrindod Wells and its surrounding communities are the A and B road networks in the area as well as the A 470 trunk road.
