ACT Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Simon Corbell has announced that work has started on a feasibility study into the future location of emergency service stations facilities in the ACT for the next 35 years.
The feasibility study involves a number of aspects including:
visiting all existing ESA stations, sheds and units across the Territory;
gaining input from all operational areas of the ESA including staff and volunteer representatives.
a review of recent and projected demographic, spatial and geographic changes;
confirmation of optimum locations and availability of suitable sites; and,
a cost benefit analysis.
Mr Corbell also said “This is not about closing down any existing facilities but making sure the people of Canberra are best served by our emergency services.”
