NEW BLAYNEY RFS STATION UNDERWAY

Construction of the new $850,000 Blayney Rural Fire Brigade Station is progressing well and on track for completion.



Deputy Premier and Member for Bathurst Paul Toole stopped by to inspect the progress on the Marshalls Lane site opposite the showgrounds.


Mr Toole said Blayney Shire Council provided the land for the station, with NSW Government funding allocated to provide the Blayney Brigade members with a purpose-built facility.


“This new station will provide our local volunteer firefighters with new state-of-the-art technology and facilities, allowing them to meet and train on site and store and maintain their vital equipment,” he said.


“The new building will incorporate bathroom and laundry amenities, change rooms, training and meeting rooms and a kitchen.


“Thank you to all our volunteers for their ongoing dedication and hard work in protecting our community from emergencies and disasters here in the Central West.”


Superintendent Bowden said construction of the four-bay station is expected to be completed by the end of April, well ahead of the 2023/24 fire season.


“The Blayney Brigade has enjoyed strong membership and this new facility will provide room for the membership to grow,” Superintendent Bowden said.


“Brigade members attend and assist with motor vehicle accidents and grass fires, as well as being called to incidents to support other emergency services.


“RFS members are dedicated to helping their communities 24 hours a day, seven days a week.“
