Up­grade for fireys’ base

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Gizelle Ghidella

THE Port Dou­glas Fire and Res­cue Sta­tion has a new look.

Ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tions worth $1 mil­lion have up­graded the fa­cil­ity.

Cap­tain Clay­ton Vladich thanked stake­hold­ers in­volved in the ex­ten­sion of the sta­tion and praised the work of his crew.

“I ap­plaud all of you for the time and ef­fort you put into us, it makes a dif­fer­ence,” he said.

“I thank my crew who are an amaz­ing bunch of peo­ple, I can’t do it with­out you.

Min­is­ter for Po­lice, Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices Mark Ryan was at the sta­tion to un­veil its new en­gine bay and ex­ten­sion.

“The ren­o­va­tion gives the sta­tion in­creased ca­pac­ity to store its fire trucks that were pre­vi­ously shuf­fled around the busy front en­trance and gives room for growth of the fleet.”
