36. Volunteer Units.
It was reported by the Firemaster and noted that a new Volunteer Unit had been started at Lochearnhead and that new sheds for the storage of appliances had been provided at Kinloch Rannoch and Kirkmichael
(Perth and Kinross Joint Fire Committee Meeting 30/10/1960)

The construction of new stations at Kinloch Rannoch, Glenshee and Kirkmichael is now at a very advanced stage and it is anticipated that at the time of publication arrangements will have been made to commission the new premises.
Three Gamecock Karrier fire appliances have been refurbished and fitted with radios in preparation for the opening of the stations and, to ensure that the volunteer firemen are accustomed to the new style fire engines, a training programme has been initiated with the emphasis on driving and radio procedures.
(Firemaster's Annual Report 1977/78.)
