With the new brigade structure introduced in the summer of 2003 the 3 Divisions were re-organised into 2 Commands North and South, Raasay was put into South Command. Call signs remained the same.
On 1st April 2005 along with 61 other units Raasay was upgraded to a Retained Unit, drilling one night per week and receiving a retaining fee.
Raasay is first mentioned in the 1949/50 Annual Report as a Non Mobile Volunteer Unit.
Raasay had a call sign of B54 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to T34, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.
