New fire station for Hamilton

HAMILTON will be the location of one of four new fire stations to be built in Tasmania in the next year. Police and Emergency Management Minister David O’Byrne today said the new stations would be built from steel-framed colorbond. The new station at Hamilton would have dual engine bays and would cost about $110,000. There will be a separate meeting room, toilets and kitchenette, as well as storage and office facilities.

“Our dedicated volunteer firefighters do an incredible job protecting Tasmanians and their property – especially over the summer months,” Mr O’Byrne said. “They spend countless hours away from their families, training and protecting their communities. 

“We deeply appreciate their selfless contribution and we’re supporting them by providing the best and most modern facilities possible. The new fire stations will strengthen these regional communities, and help keep them safe and prepared. This is also an important step towards attracting new volunteers,” he said.
