ACT Attorney General Simon Corbell says there will be no disruption to the normal operation of these services.

“I think most Canberrans won’t notice any significant, certainly won’t see any significant disruption to their day to day business, although they may notice a bit more activity than usual from our police and emergency services on the day,” he said.

The Greenway fire station had an announcement going off about an explosion at around 11.

No vehicles were deployed, unless they had already left the station.
