New Broughton Fire Station boosts the Community...

The government has committed $324,000 to build a new fire station at Broughton through the Rural Fire Station Replacement Project.

The new facility will provide improved meeting and training facilities so fire-fighters can continue serving the community well into the future.

“The Station features bathroom facilities, a two bay motor room, a water tank and storage facilities.”  The Broughton and District Fire Brigade began in 1938 and currently has 29 members.

Minister Delahunty said “the station would boost the safety of fire fighters as well as residents in the local agricultural community.  This brigade is often called upon to fight stubble fires and fires caused by headers and members of this brigade have also been involved in major incidents” Minister Delahunty said.

Broughton CFA Captain, Stephen Allen said “ we are very excited to have a new station in Broughton.  It was a fantastic day, we had over 40 people in attendance.  We have 29 members and are always looking for new members to join.”  It was great to welcome Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty as well as CFA Captains and Past Captains from around the district" Mr Allen said.

Congratulations to Broughton and District on a wonderful new establishment.
