A re-elected Morrison Government will commit $2.2 million to build a new fire station for the Roleystone-Karragullen Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade at Springdale Park.
Liberal Member for Canning, Andrew Hastie, said this was a vital piece of infrastructure to protect our bushfire prone region, which he has been fighting for in Canberra.
“The new fire station would provide a permanent home for the Roleystone-Karagullen Brigade and will enhance our region’s resilience to bushfires,” Mr Hastie said.
“It is critical that we equip our volunteer firefighters with the facilities and infrastructure they need to keep our communities safe.
This investment will ensure that our community is prepared to fight and stop bushfires when they threaten our community.
“Volunteer firefighters put their own safety at risk to protect us, and I’m proud to be part of a Government that will continue to invest in them and the infrastructure they need.
If re-elected in May, the Morrison Government will fulfil the City of Armadale’s request for funding for construction of the Roleystone-Karagullen Volunteer Bushfire Brigade at Springdale Park including construction of a secondary access and associated equipment such as variable message fire danger rating boards.
Only the Morrison Government will continue to deliver a better future for Canning and this is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
