New ambulance and fire station to be officially opened

Mon, 02 Oct 2017

The new fire and ambulance station in the south of the Island will be officially opened tomorrow.

Staff moved to the new £1.45m facility earlier this year, but Home Affairs Minister Bill Malarkey and Health Minister Kate Beecroft will formally open the site tomorrow evening, unveiling a plaque to mark the occasion.

The new station includes a training ground, drive-in drive-out capability for ambulances and fire engines, and a 10-metre multi-purpose tower.

The station replaced Castletown fire station, which closed after more than 53 years, as well as the Southern Ambulance Station, which will close to be converted into a new fire station for Port Erin.
