Sta­tion merger plan still on track

The Oban Times - - News -

PLANS to merge Oban’s com­mu­nity fire sta­tion with the town’s am­bu­lance sta­tion have stalled but have not stopped.

The Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (SFRS) are in dis­cus­sions about bring­ing the two ser­vices to­gether un­der one roof, Oban’s com­mu­nity safety group heard last Fri­day.

SFRS Oban sta­tion man­ager Martin Hill said: ‘ The pro­pos­als for us to co-share with the am­bu­lance ser­vice are at an ad­vanced stage.

‘ There are a num­ber of pro­to­col to be dis­cussed which has slowed up the process at the mo­ment. There is a de­sire within the fire ser­vice to see this hap­pen.’
