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

Chief Fire Officer’s Welcome
Welcome to all our guests and friends at the opening of the
new Fire Station in Scalloway, Shetland.
The Highlands & Islands Fire & 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 Scalloway, 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 works hard to secure the necessary resources to fund the Service and I am pleased that the Shetland Fire Board Members are here to attend the ceremony.
Thank you everyone for attending and supporting our Service.
