Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Pipe Band
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) was established on the 1st of April 2013 and It replaced the eight previous fire and rescue authorities and joint fire and rescue boards.
The main purpose of the SFRS is to work in partnership with communities and with others in the public, private and third sectors on prevention, protection and response to improve the safety and wellbeing of people throughout Scotland.
The SFRS Pipe Band plays a major part in promoting the Service all over Scotland from their base at the West Service Delivery Headquarters in Hamilton.
We have a competing Grade 2 Band and a training and development band which between them represent the SFRS at many ceremonial and social functions throughout the year.
The Grade 2 Band competes at all the Major Pipe Band Championships and are led by Pipe Major George Sharp and Leading Drummer Alistair Hepburn.
