1991 New garage and van (H899CAS). Donated by Occidental GB Ltd. (now trading as Elf Enterprise Caledonia.)
A new unit is to be set up in Flotta and it is hoped that the
garage will be complete in this financial year.

With the new brigade structure introduced in the summer of 2003 the 3 Divisions were re-organised into 2 Commands North and South, Flotta was put into North Command. Call signs remained the same.
On 1st April 2005 along with 61 other units Flotta was upgraded to a Retained Unit, drilling one night per week and receiving a retaining fee.
31/8/2012 The Board agreed to close 4 fire stations within the Service area, namely Flotta, Foula, Outer Skerries and Boat of Garten and 6 Community Response Units (Evie, Mossbank, Achfary, Strathpeffer, Kyleakin and Waternish).
