The Chairman of Strathclyde Regional Council Police and Fire
Committee decided that because of the length of time that Govan Fire Station had
been operational and the severe cut backs in the Regional budget, to have a
simple dedication service, rather than the traditional opening service.
The service will be attended by the Chairman of the Police and Fire Committee, the Vice Chairman, together with the Firemaster, Deputy Firemaster and Brigade Chaplin and the Local Regional Councillor. The Chairman wants to meet the station personnel and I suggest there is a parade after which a small dedication service. Station personnel are invited to bring their wives or partners if they so desire.
Would you please arrange to have light refreshments at Govan Fire station.
On the 6th of November 1987 the following stations were dedicated :-
Cheapside House 14-30
