The appliance with call sign 791 is the former second pump from North Anderson Drive which has been relocated to the Bridge of Don to the north of Aberdeen. This new station has not yet been constructed, but its appliance and station staff are currently being accommodated at Central fire station, which previously covered the Bridge of Don area.
A new station is required at Bridge of Don as Grampian Fire Brigade are unable to meet the the response times for that area.
19/2/2005 Bridge of Don temporary station closed and the appliance moved back to North Anderson Drive as a second machine.
29/4/2005 Grampian Fire Board decided that the new stations at Bridge of Don and Kingswells would not go ahead following the move away from the former National Standards of Fire Cover to a risk based assessment. Both these areas are low/very low risk areas.
