State-of-the-art fire station opens in Bunbury
Thursday 9 February 2017 – 5:00 PM

The Bunbury community’s emergency services have been given a boost with the opening of a new state-of-the-art career fire station.

Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Wayne Gregson said the new $7.2 million station on Bussell Highway provides Bunbury’s firefighters with an excellent base to serve the community.

“Bunbury’s firefighters are attending more incidents than ever before, and this new fire station has been designed with the potential for further expansion,” Commissioner Gregson said.

“In the last year alone they responded to more than 700 incidents - an increase of 200 compared to previous years.

“Firefighters work tirelessly to protect our communities and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services is committed to ensuring they are well-equipped to deal with emergency incidents.”

The new purpose-built station can accommodate 12 firefighters and provides them with increased training facilities, including a confined space rescue tower, to enhance their skills.

It is also equipped with better accommodation spaces enabling recuperation between call-outs, and an innovative contamination facility to ensure firefighters are free from contaminants when returning from incidents.

Commissioner Gregson said the new station would support the growing community in Bunbury and the South West region.  

“This facility will not only benefit the firefighters, but the wider community with a more efficient and coordinated response to emergencies including fires, road crash rescues and chemical spills across the region.”
