Welcome to the Bundoran Fire & Rescue website.
We are situated in the beautiful seaside resort of Bundoran at
the bottom part of County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way,
where it borders the counties of Leitrim and Sligo. The Fire Station has the callsign
DL18 (Delta Lima 18). It is a one pump station and the Fire Appliance
callsign is DL18 Alpha 1. We also have a Incident Support
Vehicle, callsign DL18 Mike 2.
All 9 Firefighters are on call by pager 24 hrs a day, 365
days a year, and they live and work around the town of Bundoran. Our site includes the history of our brigade
with photos of the crews past and present, Fire Appliances past and
present, some pictures from call-outs we have attended and other memorabilia. We hope you enjoy your online visit to Bundoran Fire Station,
and we welcome you to come along and visit us if you see us out
at Incidents or doing Fire Drill. Please also

New Fire Station for Bundoran?
Bundoran will not
get its new Fire Station in the foreseeable future until the
economic downturn has changed.These cutbacks are affecting not alone the Bundoran
and Ballyshannon Fire Stations, but throughout the country.
A new site had previously been
passed for going to planning stage by the previous Government at the
East End of the Town, between the Bypass and Bundoran Roundabouts,
but this has now been put on hold.
"This site is dedicated to all the
Firefighters who served with the Bundoran Fire Brigade. The commitment
that they and their families gave to the town of Bundoran, for without them,
much property and many lives would not have been saved"
We are constantly updating the
Bundoran Fire & Rescue website, so make sure you visit
us again soon!
