New modern headquarters for Fire & Rescue NSW
The new $23 million facility will allow FRNSW to coordinate its operations more effectively by having key people and functions under one roof.
This will allow FRNSW to respond more efficiently when a major disaster or large-scale emergency hits.
Construction of the new headquarters took 18 months and includes 3700m² of floor space.
Minister for Emergency Services Troy Grant said the new modern headquarters would allow FRNSW to continue their long and proud tradition of protecting the community in times of danger.
“The state-of-the-art building gives firefighters every chance to perform at the top of their game,” Mr Grant said.
Fire & Rescue NSW Commissioner Paul Baxter said the new headquarters reflected a new era.
“There is a constant drive within FRNSW to keep improving its performance and the vital services it provides the community,” Mr Baxter said.
“It’s important we have the infrastructure that supports and enhances the organisation’s key capabilities – its ability to respond to fires and emergencies and to deliver a critical public safety message.”
