FIRE STATION OPENED
Speaking at the opening of Tarbert’s new Fire Station last week, Provost Daniel
McKinven, a member of the Western Fire Area Joint Committee, said that there was
now a continuous link straight through Kintyre and Mid Argyll.
The very large forestry area, he added, was now fully protected by an efficient and modern service.
The station, which cost £27,000, was opened by a Tarbert representative on Argyll County Council, Councillor Peter McIntyre. It was designed by Mr W. R. Tocher, Argyll County Architect.
Incorporated in the one storey building are office premises, workshops and a recreation room. Electric storage heaters provide the heating and there’s a 46 feet high hose drying and drill tower.
The station’s one appliance is an Austin self propelled pump with a 500 gallons per minute main pump. It also carries a 250 g.p.m. featherweight pump, a 100 gallon water tank and hose reel gear.
The station is manned by a retained staff of one Sub Officer, one Leading Fireman and eight firemen.
A new Fire Station at Lochgilphead was opened on the same day. This is the first time the Joint Committee have opened two stations in one day. Lochgilphead’s station was the 15th to be opened since the committee was set up 20 years ago.
Campbeltown’s Station Officer, Mr Neil Morrison, accompanied Provost McKinven at the ceremonies.
