A spokesperson said:

‘Despite being a smaller station in the county and not as frequently engaged as some others, the East Leake Fire Station team continues to provide exceptional service to its community.

‘The readiness of their fire engine to respond at any moment can often disrupt social events, primary jobs, and even sleep. However, the crew takes immense pride in their work, consistently ensuring excellent coverage for their area.’
