LOCHBOISDALE FIRE STATION
Wednesday 8th September 2010
Chief Fire Officer’s Welcoming Address:
Welcome to all our guests and
friends at the opening of the newly built Fire Station at Lochboisdale.
Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service is determined to make our communities safer. Our firefighters do this through providing community safety advice and an emergency response service that is second to none. In recent years we have made increasing demands upon the firefighters of Lochboisdale, expanding their role and asking them to learn new skills. They have met this challenge and today I am proud that we are able to provide them with a station that meets their professional, safety, dignity and welfare needs. I am confident it will be an important community resource for many years to come.
The Fire Board work hard to secure the necessary resources to fund the Service and I am pleased that our Convenor Richard Durham is here to officially open the station.
Thank you everyone for attending and supporting our Service.
