New Inn Fire Station was opened in 1952 under the Monmouth Fire Brigade and was the Headquarters, Control and Stores for Gwent Fire Service up until April 1996 when Gwent, South and Mid Glamorgan Fire Services amalgamated into the South Wales Fire & Rescue Service.
Within the last two years a High Volume Pump (HVP) has been positioned at the station which can be utilised at large fire or flooding incidents within the South Wales area or nationally. New Inn Crews were deployed in the summer of 2007 to major flooding incidents in both South Yorkshire and the Gloucester Areas.
