Fire & Snow


The vehicles and equipment used by the emergency services have become more sophisticated over the years, and this is well illustrated by the local fire service which was set up in Foggie in 1897. In the early years the fire appliance was hand pulled and hand-pumped. Since 1970 modern fire engines operate form the station in Taylor Drive.
One aspect of road transport where technology has also improved greatly over the years is in snow clearance.
