1949/50 Approved or under
construction, improvements to existing doorway of appliance room at Carnoustie
1958/59 Owing to a new housing development in Kinloch Street, the Local authority required the ground on which the Fire Station Muster Room was situated. We were required to vacate this building and are at present occupying a small cottage on a temporary basis. The erection of a new station in this area is under consideration.
1959/60 Fire station at Carnoustie consists of two old buildings and is situated in an area which has been redeveloped by the local Council. The committee approved the building of a new Station in 1959. Work on this project is now in the hands of the Architects and it is anticipated that erection will begin in the summer of 1960 and be completed later in the year.
1960/61 The new Station provided for Carnoustie was officially opened by the Provost of the Burgh, D. R. Paton, Esq., M.A., on 27th June, 1961. This station built at a cost of £5,250 is severely functional but offers a vast improvement in facilities for appliances, equipment, personnel and training over the previous accommodation.
Prior to the opening of the Station at 19 Kinloch Street on 27/6/1961 the equipment was kept in sheds further down Links Avenue belonging to Carnoustie Town Council.
As from June 1973 the personnel was increased to 12.(1 Sub O, 2 L/Fm and 9 Fm)
1959/60 Fire Station consists of two old buildings.
Fire station opened
Carnoustie’s new £5000 fire station
was formally opened last night.
Mr. W. S. Wilson, chairman of Angus Fire Area Joint Committee, presided at a short ceremony.
In declaring the station open Provost D. R. Paton expressed satisfaction at the harmony with which the committee and the Town Council had worked together.
He was sure the members of the unit would be proud of their new quarters and that it would be a new incentive to them.
The town owed a great debt to the retained firemen.
Firemaster John Jackson expressed thanks.
