The Northern Fire Area Administration Scheme Order, 1948

  Equipment Retained
  1 Towing Vehicle 1 Leading Fireman

The old station in Shore Road was a 1 pump station and the new station built in Academy Road was a 2 pump station. It was originally built as a Day Manning station for the expected oil related industries, but these never materialised. District offices were stationed here and they took over the left side of the building then the Training School was put here taking over the buildings to the rear.

With the new brigade structure introduced in the summer of 2003 the 3 Divisions were re-organised into 2 Commands North and South, Invergordon was put into North Command. Call signs remained the same.

Invergordon had a call sign of B3 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to S30, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.

 

INVERGORDON TOWN COUNCIL
FIRE BRIGADE FOR THE BURGH

At the usual monthly meeting of Invergordon Town Council it was decided to form a Fire Brigade in connection with the burgh, and the necessary arrangements with a view to carrying out this decision will be carried out at once.
