The Oban Times - - Districts -

RU­RAL air­ports across the High­land and Is­lands have joined forces with the Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (SFRS) to keep com­mu­ni­ties safe.

This will see fire fight­ers at High­land and Is­land Air­port Lim­ited (HIAL) air­ports across Barra, Is­lay and Tiree as­sist­ing SFRS crews in the event of an emer­gency.

In turn, SFRS crews will be drafted in to sup­port air­port fire crews in the event of un­fore­seen cir­cum­stanc- es or any ma­jor in­ci­dents at the HIAL air­ports.

A for­mal me­moran­dum of un­der­stand­ing was signed and the news of the in­no­va­tive part­ner­ship was an­nounced at In­ver­ness Air­port last Wed­nes­day.
