Provost John Sinclair who used to be convener of the Town Council’s Fire Committee in the days before Area Fire Committees, will open Thurso’s new fire station in Millbank Road at 5-30 p.m. today (Wednesday). Tain’s new fire station is to be opened tomorrow.
Both fire stations have been similarly designed on modern lines. They have offices, muster rooms, shower rooms and other accommodation.
The stations will be the second and third stations to be opened in the committee’s area since the war. The first one opened was at Stornoway.
(The Caithness Courier, Wednesday, September 22, 1954. Page 3.)

April 2001 moved to C Division. Was B4 now C12.

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

Tain had a call sign of C12 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to S29, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.
