Our organisation

The Mayor of London visited Dockhead Fire Station earlier this month (20 March) to see a showcase of some of our new equipment.

Commissioner Dany Cotton, who was also present, said “We’re at the forefront of developing and introducing new equipment to protect Londoners and keep our firefighters safe.”

New equipment

The new equipment included:

  • The new gold uniforms and their protective features
  • Fire escape hoods - providing up to 15 minutes protection from four of the main fire gases
  • WASP devices - detecting vibrations that might indicate a building is about to move
  • Drones -providing an aerial view of incidents

Partners from the Met Police and London Ambulance Service were also at the Fire Station to showcase their equipment.

The morning wrapped up with Police and Fire Investigation dogs demonstrating their detection skills and boundless energy to a very impressed crowd.
