Replacing the former station in Mill Street, the new station has been provided at a cost of 9,000 by the conversion of an existing building in Airlie Street. It is a single bay station, with garaging for one appliance, muster bay, lecture room, kitchen, work room, drying room, office  and stores plus a large practice yard.
Also taking part in this evening's opening will be county councillor M. J. Kidd, chairman of Perth and Kinross Fire Committee, and Hon. Treasurer A. U. Cross, Perth, vice chairman of the committee.

The new fire station at Alyth, a popular tourist resort in the eastern district of Perthshire, was formally opened by Provost George P. Beats before an assembly of about 100 guests, reports Firemaster A. Masson, Perth and Kinross Fire Brigade.
The building, which was formerly used by an agricultural company is situated in Airlie Street, the principal thoroughfare of Alyth, and is the 14th new station provided by the fire authority.
The Provost was accompanied at the ceremony by Mr. Kidd, chairman of the Joint Fire Committee, Mr. Cross, the vice chairman, and Firemaster Masson.
During the ceremony Long Service and Good Conduct medals were presented to Sub Officer Alexander Dow, Coupar Angus, and Fireman William Whitton, Pitlochry.
