Kingston fire station was set up in 1949 to enable the village to do something whilst wating for the fire engine to arrive from Kingsbridge or Ivybridge, for 70 years volunteers at the station have intervened and many incidents, saving property and lives, we are saddened that the Fire and rescue service now feel we will be safer together without a fire station here at Kingston. Many changes have taken place over the years but no improvements have been made to the road network, can a fire engine really reach the village in the times claimed?
