£166,000 FIRE STATION

“COMRIE now has a fire station worthy of its people,” commented Tayside Regional Councillor William Johnston at the official opening of Comrie’s new £166,000 fire station last night.
Councillor Johnston, Convener of Tayside Police and Fire Committee, described the new station as a “massive improvement.”
“This splendid building gives Comrie a purpose built fire station with modern, up-to-date facilities for men and machines.”
Designed by the region’s architectural services department and constructed by Carmichael Builders (Cornrie) Ltd., the new station off Strowan Road, replaces premises in Dundas Street.
“I cannot praise highly enough the firemen who operated out of Dundas Street,” added Councillor Johnston. “They did a marvellous job with a building which presented operational difficulties. Now they have a station geared to their needs, and geared to the needs of Comrie.”
The Dundas Street station, on Comrie’s busy main street, was too small to house a modern fire appliance. Along with the new bulding, Comrie now has an up-to-date fire appliance to replace the previous model.
The new station, which has been in operation less than a month, is single storey, traditional construction. Accommodation includes a one-vehicle appliance room, and the building has been designed to reduce maintainence to a minimum.
Training facilities have been provided, along with better accommodation, for Comrie’s 12 retained firemen. Car parking for the men, always a problem with the old station, is available, plus a lecture room, drill yard and drill tower for fire practice.
The station’s proximity to the River Earn offers opportunities for pump practice.
“This building is in keeping with the modern day requirements of Comrie and I am delighted to officially declare it open,” said Councillor Johnston.
Dr W. K. Fitzgerald, convener of the regional council, gave the opening address at last night’s ceremony and the vote of thanks came from Councillor Hugh MacPhail, vice-convener of the Police and Fire Committee.
