This was B14 until 28/6/2004 when it became Station 34 and on ?/12/2015 it became P62 with the introduction of the new National Call Signs.

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.

New fire station cost rises 

The cost of a new volunteer fire station at Glenshee has increased as a result of taking water from a private supply and the condition that natural stone in used in its construction.
Tayside Fire Board were told the cost had risen from £160,000 to £175,000 for the new station which will include an appliance hall and office, messing, drying and toilet facilities.
Planning permission was granted on June 23 with conditions set down for extensive landscaping and natural stone and slate being used in construction.
Work is expected to start at the beginning of October.

Glenshee volunteer fire station opens 

The new volunteer fire station at Glenshee will be officially opened at a small ceremony on September 22, Tayside Fire Board has decided.
Board member David Scott, who has been a driving force in the development of the station, will perform the official duties.
Among those expected to attend the ceremony will be the stationís fire personnel and their families, representatives of the contractors who built the station and board members.
The station, which will replace the previous facility, is due to open shortly having been delayed by adverse weather conditions.
In his report to the board, Firemaster Derek Marr said the project marked significant progress in volunteer station provision in the brigade.

New fire station for Glenshee

A new volunteer fire station has been opened at Glenshee by Councillor David Scott.
Given the rural and scenic situation the Brigade ensured that the design of the building would blend in with surrounding properties and be sympathetic, aesthetically to the environment.
Further care was taken to ensure that the services were designed in such a way as to include energy saving measures to lessen the environmental impact of the building and to ensure that it would be cost effective in use.
The project involved relocating from their original building at Finegand Farm, which had become outdated and lacked the facilities required of a modern fire station.
The new station provides an appliance hall and multi-purpose area with general office and lecture room facilities where breathing apparatus can be serviced. Toilet and shower areas are now also provided.
Communications equipment, including a fax, have been installed and along with the issue of personal pagers to firefighters, should improve response times for emergency calls.
