Castletown Fire Station Vs Port Erin Fire Station

These two Fire Stations are about 2 miles apart, combine the two of them and reduce staffing and stations and the cost to run two seperate fire stations.

Why the contribution is important

Massive reduction in running costs for these two stations, look at the call out costs and statistics as to how many calls each of these stations get per year.

You will be surprised that the stations dont get many calls and by just how much these stations are costing the IOM Taxpayer.

    quite agree with these comments, the new fire station being built in the south should be on castletown bye-pass where it would only take about 5 minutes travel time to reach port erin. the savings made would be considerable, they would include equipment, uniforms and firefighting kit, drill fee's, retainer, fire fees, appliances, the list goes on.

    What about airport fire fighters? Understand that airport fire fighters can be baggage handlers too. Two jobs for price of one & I suppose if they are genuinely needed for a aircraft fire your bags can wait.
