2000/2001 unit upgraded. Upgrades to units involves equipping them with Breathing Apparatus, Firefighting Uniforms, Road Traffic Accident Rescue Equipment, Pagers and Fire Engines appropriate to the needs of the local area.
With the new brigade structure introduced in the summer of 2003 the 3 Divisions were re-organised into 2 Commands North and South, Aultbea was put into North Command. Call signs remained the same.
On 1st April 2005 along with 61 other units Aultbea was upgraded to a Retained Unit, drilling one night per week and receiving a retaining fee.
Aultbea had a call sign of B44 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to T40, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.
CARRBRIDGE FIRE STATION
Friday 25th September 2009
Chief Fire Officer’s Welcoming Address:
Welcome to all our guests and
friends at the opening of the newly built Fire Station at Carrbridge.
The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service is determined to make our communities safer. Our Firefighters at Carrbridge do this through providing Community Safety advice and a Community Response Service to Road Traffic Accidents and Wildfires. In recent years the station and its personnel have gone through a challenging period of change and development. They have been proactive and determined in shaping their own future and it is testament to the Firefighters, their supporters and the good community spirit in Carrbridge, that the Unit is currently thriving and providing an excellent service from its new station in the heart of the village.
I admire the resilience and resourcefulness of the team in Carrbridge and I am absolutely confident that in the years to come they will continue to grow and develop. Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service is a community based organisation and the Firefighters could not provide the commitment they do without the support of their families. It is therefore fitting that today’s official opening will be performed by Mrs Bunty MacDonald who has worked tirelessly to secure the units long term future.
Many thanks to everyone for attending and supporting our very special team here in Carrbridge.
