Bundoran Fire Brigade

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 Sign our Guestbook. We welcome your comments.

No 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!
