Fire Station.

The proposal to close Kingston fire station has been withdrawn from the safer together programme, subject to a change in the way the on call system will work, further reviews will take place.

The Mercedes fire engine, which was designed and built by DSFRS specifically for rural fire fighting dates from 1996, the conversion was undertaken ” in house” and it was first used here at Kingston on 9th Dec 1998, Has now been replaced by a newer Rapid Intervention Vehicle, on a 3 month trial period whilst the 4×4 has gone to Princetown to cover the bad weather period.
