A new State Emergency Service station will be built in Tuggeranong with $2.7 million in this year’s ACT budget allocated for the project.

The facility will house four-wheel drive vehicles, storm response equipment and a flood boat.

ACT government minister and Calwell local Mick Gentleman welcomed the announcement on Wednesday, saying the centre would be a great addition to the Tuggeranong Valley as well as to the ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES).

“The ACTSES depends heavily on its volunteers, many of which are based at the Tuggeranong ACTSES, with training regularly provided to keep them at the top of their game,” the member for Brindabella said.

ACTSES is a volunteer emergency service organisation that provides around-the-clock community assistance during emergencies and disasters, including floods and storm damage.
