- Purpose-built fire station opened by Somerset FB Chief Officer in May 1972
- The Chilton Cantelo School Fire Brigade was brought in to being in 1964. Initially an elderly land rover was purchased and a wartime trailer pump was acquired thanks to the Somerset Fire Brigade. Considerable work was done to adapt the land rover to carry a water tank, powered pump and a ladder and this was undertaken by pupils. Later the equipment and the Fire Brigade were the subject of a television programme. In 1967 the county fire service offered the school a Rolls Dennis F12 major appliance (PYB782) to which was added the necessary ancillary equipment and supply of hoses and a 60 foot wheeled escape was purchased from Hereford county.
