$3.9 million fire station set for Port Macquarie
The new fire station will replace the Hay Street Station. The station has served the local community since 1958, but no longer meets the needs of today’s fire-fighters.
Minister for Police and Emergency Services Stuart Ayres said the new station will be equipped with advanced facilities “worthy of a modern fire service”.
“The site is ideally located to provide fire-fighters with easy access to and from main roads in Port Macquarie, and the new station will service the needs of fire-fighters and the community well into the future,” Mr Ayres said.
The new station will accommodate three fire engines, a hazardous materials van, a boat and trailer and will incorporate facilities for fire-fighters to refill breathing cylinders. It will also provide office space for the zone management team.
