Notes

 

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.
(H&IFB Annual Report 1990.)

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).
