Notes

 

There is a mural on the front of the building at the left hand side showing a tractor, a cow and factories depicting the coming together of of the town and country as at that time Sighthill was out in the country.

In 1980 the Establishment was 1 Station Officer, 1 Sub Officer, 2 Leading Firemen and 12 Firemen per watch (4 watches).

Sighthill had a call sign of 31 in Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service, this was changed to K06, the new National Call Sign on 3/5/2017.
