ON THE INSIDE
THE STATION OFFICE.
A typical Fire Station office with the trophy cabinet in a prime location, computer workstation, filing cabinets and the OiC's desk just showing in the bottom left hand corner.
THE CONTROL ROOM.
Once the hub of any Fire Station, now with the introduction of direct printers etc, used mainly for general station duties.
A view of one side of the room, complete with Computer Workstation, Electronic Smart Board and Conference Seating. To the left can be seen the hatchway through to the kitchen.
A second view of the room looking from the workstation, with audience seating and a Dry Wipe Board. The rear of 31-1 can be seen through the doorway which leads to the rear yard.
The Breathing Apparatus cleaning room, being used for storage while the station is being painted.
On the back wall is the remains of a propane gas cylinder involved in a large fire at a coach garage in Kingsbridge which exploded very close to two Totnes firefighters, brought back and mounted as a gentle reminder.

THE UNIQUE WOOD FIREFIGHTER SCULPTURE AT TOTNES FIRE STATION.
The area where the tree was, for a time looked almost bare, but enterprising Totnes firefighter Trevor Feltham decided to replace the Willow tree with something new and very original, something I believe no other fire station has. A 6 feet tall, wood sculpture of a fully rigged firefighter, complete with full PPE, wearing breathing apparatus complete with a DSU and holding a hose and branch.
The sculpture, carved from a single tree trunk by an expert with a chain saw, stands on the grass bank just as you enter the station and can be seen from the road by passers by.
