Community Well Served by New Mount Druitt Fire Station
Mr Grant toured the facilities and met with Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Metropolitan West Area Commander Chief Superintendent Robert Murray and local firefighters.
Mount Druitt Fire Station was relocated to the new site to improve efficiencies in the region’s emergency response and capability.
Mr Grant said the former Mount Druitt, St Mary’s and Ropes Crossing fire stations had previously been located within a few kilometres of each other, resulting in some inefficiencies in response coverage.
“The new Mount Druitt Fire Station ensures better emergency response coverage for communities throughout the growing Western Sydney area,” Mr Grant said.
“This fire station will provide a permanent, state-of-the-art base for the firefighters who work hard to protect the local and surrounding communities.
“The NSW Government is committed to providing our firefighters with the best possible equipment and amenities, so they are prepared for anything, anywhere, anytime.”
Completed in December 2017, the new station includes a double engine bay, improved training facilities, fitness room and separate male/female amenities.
The station is staffed by four Station Officers and 16 permanent firefighters.
Chief Superintendent Robert Murray said the new facilities will boost firefighters’ ability to respond to a wide range of emergencies.
“The new Mount Druitt Fire Station is providing firefighters with the facilities they need to continue delivering the best service possible well into the future,” Mr Murray said.
This financial year the NSW Government will be investing $52 million in capital works. Since 2011, the NSW Government has upgraded or constructed new fire stations throughout Western Sydney including Cabramatta, Huntingwood, Windsor, Springwood and Ropes Crossing.
