Construction has commenced on the new Busby Fire Station, a $6.6m facility designed to better serve communities in Sydney’s south-west.

The new station will provide more space for firefighters, equipment and vehicles, as well as improved working conditions and dedicated cleaning areas. 

The facility will meet the needs of a diversifying firefighting workforce with amenities for male and female firefighters, and new design measures to reduce potentially dangerous materials being brought back from firegrounds under FRNSW’s Clean Firefighter program.

The station will be fitted with energy efficiency measures that lower the building’s environmental footprint, including sun screening on the most exposed sides of the building, skylights for natural lighting, and wind turbine ventilators over the engine bay to provide natural ventilation.

Emergency Services Minister Jihad Dib said:

“The NSW Government will continue to provide our firefighters with the most modern, environmentally friendly facilities so that they best equipped to protect the local community and save lives.”

“The new fire station has state-of-the-art amenities that will allow for faster response times to better protect residents in the Busby and surrounding areas.”

Member for Liverpool Charishma Kaliyanda said:

“The new fire station will provide a boost to the area’s capability to respond to emergencies.”

“It will enable the local crew to return to the community and continue to provide the best possible service to the people of Miller and surrounds.”

Fire and Rescue NSW Acting Commissioner Jeremy Fewtrell said:

“Construction work is already underway at the site, building a workplace from which Busby’s firefighters will be proud to operate.”

“The greatly improved working environment will provide firefighters with the facilities they need to ensure they are prepared for anything – to help anyone, anywhere, anytime.”

“The old station couldn’t support a diverse firefighting crew and was unable to provide the separation between work and living areas that is crucial for a modern, firefighting workplace.
