Castlerea Fire Station closed

Roscommon’s Chief Fire Officer has confirmed that Castlerea Fire Station has closed temporarily due to a shortage of available staff.

A report on Shannonside FM on Friday states “The station is closed from today for an undetermined period of time as staff levels fell below critical levels due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Speaking to Shannonside FM, John Keane confirmed in the last hour that all emergency calls will be answered via the usual 999 or 112 numbers, and that fire services from Roscommon town, Ballyhaunis, Ballaghadereen or Elphin will cover the area.
