No ... that's just one of the fire-stations ...they have a total of 10 although not all are manned 24hrs a day .... 16 fire appliances and 242 staff https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_o...Rescue_Service

Just what do all these 242 staff do all day ??? We know ... most fire stations have a gym ... it's a keep fit club where the members are paid!

I would guess this must cost about 40M pounds a year to run.
