This unit was first mentioned in the 1952/53 Annual report.

Jack Fraser was the Volunteer Leader then became the Sub Officer when the unit became retained.

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

Broadford had a call sign of B11 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to T29, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.

The official opening of the station was in May 1981.
