Moray MP Douglas Ross is supporting the appeal for more people in the Cullen area to join the local retained firefighting crew.
Douglas said: “The fire station in Cullen has been operational since 1971 and is crewed by firefighters who are on-call to respond at a moment’s notice. As well as attending emergencies, the firefighters also play an incredibly important role in the local community by providing safety advice to people in their homes. Every year they also visit the local primary schools to teach children about CPR, equipping them with this vital life-saving skill.
“When I chaired the first Police and Fire Committee on Moray Council I remember supporting efforts then to recruit new people to the station and that continues today. It is a vital station and I hope the team get a positive response to their call for new recruits.
“The station needs additional volunteers so that they can continue to provide the local community with the service they need and deserve.”
