2002/2003 Unit upgraded to BA status.

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

On 1st April 2005 along with 61 other units Bayhead was upgraded to a Retained Unit, drilling one night per week and receiving a retaining fee.

Bayhead had a call sign of B21 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to U31, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.
