Fire station opened
THE Collinsvale Fire Brigade officially opened its new station on the weekend, replacing a station built in 1967.
The new station will house a medium tanker and a light tanker in two engine bays, with upgraded facilities.
Police, Fire, and Emergency Management Minister Rene Hidding said that Tasmanians knew the devastating impact that fires can have.
“The Collinsvale brigade has played an active role in preparing the local community in fire preparation and prevention. including property assessments, fuel reduction and school visits,” he said.
