Pontypandy Fire Station

Pontypandy Fire Station, is a large Full-Time fire station based in the Small coastal village of Pontypandy. It mainly covers Pontypandy and the surrounding forestry and coastal parts of the Southern Area. Originally, it was a small station which housed Jupiter, but after some time it was gradually extended to also house Venus as well.

In Heroes of the Storm, the fire station was completely rebuilt with a new and modern outlook. The new fire station now has four vehicle bays and can hold up to 5 rescue vehicles.

Trivia

  • From Series 1-4 the station had a kitchen/sitting area and Steeles Office.
  • In series 5, it gained a gym and the bay was rebuilt to house Venus as well as the new Jupiter.
  • From series 6-9 the interior was completely rebuilt with the kitchen upstairs and the office downstairs
  • When the new station was built, they knocked down a row of houses, rebuilt part of the stone wall and moved the driveway in order to expand the ground area to meet up with the road for the station to fit.
  • Jupiter & Phoenix’s bays have exhaust extractors
  • Since Series 10 The station now has wig wag lights at the start of the driveway.
  • From Series 10 onwards, the BA sets underneath the helmets are replaced with the firefighters turnout gear as they now have station wear.
  • Outside the Control Room, there is a picture of the original fire station with Jupiter from 1987.
  • In the control room they still have the picture of the crew from Series 5. Station Officer Steele comments in Heroes of the Storm "Couldn't have a new fire station without the old picture.."
  • In Series 11, the blue lights above each bay flash instead of rotate.
  • In Series 1-4 Station Officer Steele (or whoever happened to be at the station) would always push a button on the printer desk after tearing off the call report, most likely to notify the dispatch center that they had received the call and were on their way, however since Series 5 whoever tears off the call report doesn't even though the box is still visible in Series 5.
  • In Series 1-4 it appears the dispatch center sets off the bell, however ever since Series 5 usually one of the firefighters at the station pushes a button to set it off. Occasionally this appears to not be the case, as sometimes the bell rings without the button being activated, although it may have been off-screen.
  • In Series 5 the bay that housed Venus was always off-screen, with Venus appearing from the right side of the screen, however ever since Series 6 Venus now has a bay next to Jupiter. As a result the single door was split up into two doors with a column in-between.
  • In Series 1-5 the door(s) had no logos on them, but ever since Series 6 both/all doors have the Pontypandy Fire Service logo on them.
  • From Series 6 to Heroes Of The Storm there are now two beacon lights outside of the station doors.
  • In Series 1-4 there were two separate horizontally-opening doors, but ever since Series 5 they were replaced with first a single vertically-opening door and then several vertically-opening ones.
  • In Series 1-4 the station had a sign above one of the windows, written in both English and Welsh, but ever since Series 5 it has been absent, most likely to make translations easier. This is also why none of the Pontypandy Fire Service's vehicles have any lettering on them or why there's a lack of written signage around Pontypandy.
