An elected Liberal Nationals Government will commit $2 million for the redevelopment of the Modewarre Fire Station.
The rebuild will see a new three-bay station constructed at a new location on Cape Otway Road, with fire brigade volunteers being able to work with modern facilities which will assist in improving fire services to the local community and surrounding areas as the Modewarre community grows.
It is a critical piece of infrastructure for the Modewarre CFA as its new truck does not fit into the existing fire station.
“It is vital that the Modewarre and Moriac communities have the resources they need to fight fires and protect our communities when we need help the most and this new facility will provide that” said Andrew Katos MP.
Geelong’s population is now over 195,000 people and growing at an average of around 2,500 people a year; now more than ever we must invest in our emergency services, like the Modewarre CFA and help give our local firefighters the best facilities possible.
“The current facilities here at Modewarre fire station are no longer acceptable and can’t even house the brand new fire truck that they recently received” said Andrew Katos MP.
“These new facilities will improve the health and safety for all volunteers so they can continue to keep not only Modewarre, but the entire South Barwon region safe”.
Daniel Andrews has lost control of community safety in Victoria and is seeking to control our CFA volunteers.
Unlike Labor, the Liberal Nationals will always protect those who protect us and ensure they’re safe doing so.
