St Andrews Fire Station has celebrated its 50th anniversary with a day of celebrations.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Fife, Mr Robert Balfour cut the red ribbon and opened the event. Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Assistant Chief Officer Andy Watt also unveiled a commemorative 50th anniversary plaque in the station’s honour.

Many people turned up on the day and they were treated to food from local food suppliers as well as home baking from generous supporters.


Crews also provided demonstrations of how they assist at road traffic collisions and a chip pan fire.

Fundraising from the day saw £1,800 raised for good causes. The Fire Fighters Charity received £1,000, with £500 going towards Tayside Children Cancer Lodge, while £300 was donated to Heartstart, a local charity who fundraise for the installation of defibrillators around Fife. 

The Station has also taken the opportunity of their 50th anniversary to promote recruitment and encourage new recruits to join the Service.
