The Sutton Grange-Myrtle Creek Fire Brigade is finally moving out of its old tin shed and into a new fire station, which was officially opened on October 20.
Representing the Police and Emergency Services Minister Peter Ryan, Member for Northern Victoria Donna Petrovich said the new station was an investment in the safety of around 100 homes as well as the agricultural industry and wine producing community of Sutton Grange.
‘‘The new CFA station is an important investment in protecting lives and property from the threat of fire,’’ she said.
‘‘For the first time, the brigade will have meeting and training facilities at their own station, which will help it connect with the local community and attract new members.
‘‘During the past 40 years, the Sutton Grange-Myrtle Creek brigade has operated out of an old tin shed, so it was timely that the new station be built.
‘‘The new fire station features a double engine bay with plenty of space for the brigade’s two tankers, a modern meeting room, comfortable staff facilities, and substantial storage and office space.
‘‘It is a $420,000 investment in the safety of the local community and fitting recognition of the vital work of the brigade’s 51 emergency services members and volunteers.’’
Local builders were involved in the construction of the station.
