Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service
|Facilities and equipment|
Created in 1948 from a number of smaller more local fire brigades, until 1997 the service was a division of Wiltshire County Council. After 1997, when the Borough of Swindon was separated from the county of Wiltshire to become a new unitary authority, the service was administered by a combined fire authority of thirteen members, nine appointed by Wiltshire Council and four by Swindon Borough Council, called the Wiltshire and Swindon Combined Fire Authority. The members were appointed annually.
With effect from 1 April 2016, the service was merged into the new Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service worked in partnership with the South Western Ambulance Service to provide emergency medical cover to parts of Wiltshire. These were areas that had been identified as having a greater need for ambulance cover. The aim of a co-responder team was to preserve life until the arrival of either a Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV) or an ambulance. Co-responder vehicles were equipped with oxygen and automatic external defibrillation (AED) equipment.
