Fire cover shake-up in south

Stations at the ready for change

Two fire stations in the south of the Island will be replaced to meet modern standards.

That's after Tynwald approved spending £1.4 million on the schemes.

It will lead to a new combined fire and ambulance headquarters at Ronaldsway, while the Southlands ambulance station will be converted into a fire station.

Both Castletown fire station, built in 1964, and Port Erin fire station, constructed seven years earlier, will be put up for sale.
