The new Mildura fire station was officially opened recently with more than one hundred guests, members and their families celebrating.

CFA’s Project 2016 was a major contributor providing additional funding to the building of the station.

The $5.3 million dollar state-of-the-art facility, which covers an expanse of 4500 square metres, was constructed by more than 100 local tradespeople.

The new fire station in San Mateo Avenue replaces the old one which was located in Orange Avenue - built in 1979.

Land was purchased for the building in February 2007 and building commenced May 2011. The Mildura Fire Brigade moved into the new fire station in late July 2012.

Mildura Fire Brigade’s new $5.3 million, two storey, five bay fire station in San Mateo Avenue includes a training and meeting room, technical rescue rope training platform, offices and administration areas for staff and volunteers, accommodation, operational turnout and stand-by rooms and a large station yard for training and truck maintenance.

Volunteers contributed substantial levels of additional funding to increase the size of the training and meeting room and storage sheds for Fire Equipment Maintenance. These funds were raised through the tireless work of volunteers and Fire Equipment Maintenance and the generous support of local businesses.
