AREA HEADQUARTERS

 

The old Area HQ building, recently demolished, stood to the side of Clydebank Community Fire Station, and was built around 1974 with a lifespan of 10 years. The building originally accommodated the headquarters of F Division before a restructure in 1994 renamed it North Command HQ.

In 2005, to allow for better partnership working in line with Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Strategy, a further restructure took place aligning Areas more closely with Local Authority Councils and it was then renamed East & West Dunbartonshire Area HQ. At one time the building accommodated approximately 30 Fire and Rescue employees, far beyond the original intended capacity.

34 years later, with funding from Strathclyde Fire Board, the new HQ building was completed at a cost of 0.75 million and occupied in December 2007. This is in complete contrast to the previous premises with modern spacious office accommodation for 15 officers and 6 support staff.

The previous HQ building has now been demolished and a much needed car park has been provided in its place for HQ staff. The new building will be a major asset in serving the communities of Strathclyde and East and West Dunbartonshire well into the future.
