A hose cart, helmets and axes were the only equipment needed by the Lockerbie Fire brigade in the last years of the nineteenth century, but many towns were not so well equipped even in the twentieth century.

Awards – and a new station – for fireman
proudly showed off their brand new fire station yesterday morning.
They lined up for special guests who were invited to the official opening ceremony performed by Councillor Russell Brown chairman of the region’s public protection committee.
The old fire station was built around 1936 as an annexe to the building used by Lockerbie Town Council.
Now the new fire station provides up to date facilities which include a spacious drill yard with drill tower, two appliance bays and ancilliary accommodation.
The station is manned by 10 retained personnel under the leadership of a Sub Officer, providing fire cover in the community 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. They respond to approximately 150 turnouts per year, many of which are road traffic accident on the busy A74.
During the ceremony, Employers Certificates of Appreciation and Fire Brigade Long Service and Good Conduct Medals were presented.
Medals were presented to Divisional Officer Gallagher; Retained Sub Officer McColm; Retained Fireman Wismach; Retained Fireman Galbraith; Retained Fireman McCleary; Retained Fireman Saville; Retained Fireman Maxwell; Retained Fireman McCarton; Retained Fireman Bryden; Retained Fireman Lawrie.
