Notes

15/12/1994    Garage officially opened.

2000/2001 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, Sanday was put into North Command. Call signs remained the same.

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

Sanday had a call sign of C23 in The Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to V24, the new National Call Sign, when the Control at Inverness closed on 6/12/2016 and moved to Dundee.
