Minister fired up for station
Albany’s new multimillion-dollar fire station was given the tick of approval at its official opening last week.
Emergency Services Minister Fran Logan joined Department of Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Wayne Gregson to unveil the plaque at an opening ceremony for the new station, which has been in operation since March.
Mr Logan said the station had the potential for further expansion and was built for the 21st century.
“Albany’s career and volunteer firefighters are attending more incidents than ever before, with more than 250 in the last year,” he said.
Mr Gregson said the station was a testament to all involved, from the designers to the builders, and it had been built on budget and on time.
The station was built by local builder Wauters Enterprises using local contractors and suppliers.
