Workshops

Workshops

The ECFRS Workshops are located just outside Colchester in Lexden and is home to all of the Service's spare appliances as well as any new appliances that have not been allocated. The Workshops also maintain the heavy commercial vehicles for Essex Police. As well as maintaining all of the appliances used by ECFRS, the team based there also carry out maintenance on other fire appliances (such as Sizewell Nuclear Power Plant's vehicles) and reconditioning older vehicles for resale.

Another development for the location is the construction of a dedicated urban search and rescue (USAR) facility that is home to the five New Dimension Prime Movers that were allocated to Southend-on-Sea Fire Station.
