M.P. opens new fire station

A new fire station at Clarkston was officially opened today by Miss Betty Harvie Anderson, M.P. for East Renfrewshire.
The station, which cost 116,986 , was built to replace Darnley fire station and is the 14th new station to be built in the Western Area of Renfrew, Argyll and Bute in the past ten years.
Work began on the station in June of last year and it was completed in June of this year – 12 weeks ahead of schedule. The two storey building was designed by the Renfrew County architect to fit into the surrounding area.
The station which will serve Renfrew First District – the parishes of Mearns, Eaglesham, Cathcart and Eastwood – has a two bay appliance area, workshop, garage, dormitory, offices, lecture and recreation rooms as well as a special breathing apparatus training section and will be manned by a resident station officer, 4 sub officers and 18 firemen.
