Emergency Services

Alderney Police

The day-to-day policing of Alderney is provided by just three locally based officers. 


Alderney Police are managed by senior officers in Guernsey who make regular visits to the Island in order to ensure a quality policing service is available to local residents and visitors.

Fortunately crime rates within Alderney are relatively low compared to most other jurisdictions and through a community style of policing, officers seek to maintain that level of peace.

When more serious incidents do occur Alderney Police are able to call upon support from specialist officers from Guernsey. These officers can arrive in Alderney at very short notice.

Alderney Police enjoy good co-operation from the community it serves and with that support the police will aim to continue to provide an efficient and effective service.

Alderney Ambulance Service

The Alderney Ambulance Service Limited is responsible for providing 24 hour emergency ambulance cover on the island.  Front line ambulances are crewed by Qualified Emergency Medical Technicians who are trained to respond to emergencies, perform an assessment of your condition, administer emergency treatments and interventions and transfer you to hospital where indicated.  For all emergencies requiring an emergency medical response you should call 999 where the control room based in Guernsey can mobilise the crew.

The ambulance service is not a free service and is funded by subscription as well as States funding and donations.  Patients who have not subscribed will be invoiced for any ambulance calls.

The Alderney Voluntary Fire Brigade

The Alderney Voluntary Fire Brigade has a crew of 11 volunteer firefighters and is headed by Chief Fire Officer Mark Gaudion. The fleet of vehicles includes 1 water tender with ladder, 2 water carriers and 1 Land Rover. The brigade averages 40 call-outs a year with an average response time of just 9 minutes.

The Fire station is located at Crabby, the impressive 22x.9.5metre purpose-built station built in 2004, stands next to the ambulance station, below the Mignot Memorial Hospital and has direct access to main roads. The steel-frame construction is fitted out with modern technology, has four appliance bays, a workshop, kit room, mess and a training room.
