Llanfyllin Fire Station
Llanfyllin has a population of 8189. The small town of Llanfyllin in Northern Montgomeryshire lies at the heart of an extensive agricultural community in the upper Cain Valley.
The station covers Llanfyllin Town itself and the surrounding communities such as Aber-Naint, Llanfechain, Tycrwyn, Llanfihangle and Bwlch-Y-Cibau.
Close to the town at Llanrhaeadr can be found the highest waterfall in Wales and the nearby Vyrnwy Lake; a reservoir with a stone dam which holds approximately 10 million gallons of water. The lake and waterfall attract numerous visitors to the area throughout the year. Their remote locations and the type of roads (B roads) leading to these attractions, increases the risk of vehicle collisions in the area.
Priority for 2014-2015
• Reduction in Road Traffic Collisions
• Reduction in dwelling fires
Road traffic collisions have doubled during 2013 in the Llanfyllin area. We will continue our partnership work with Powys Road safety, Dyfed Powys Police, Go Safe and the Motor cycle action group, targeting vulnerable road users (16 - 24 Year olds, Motorcyclists and those aged over 70) in line with Welsh Government road safety delivery plans.
Dwelling fires in the Llanfyllin area have doubled during 2013. Efforts will be made to build stronger relationships with Local authority housing managers, housing associations and third sector partners to identify and provide safety advice to vulnerable tenants.
