Pickering Brook volunteer fire station proposal put to the community

By Melissa Sheil

PICKERING Brook will likely be the site of a new volunteer fire station servicing the south-east metropolitan area.

An information and consultation workshop will be hosted next week to gauge community opinion on the location at George Spriggs Reserve.

Reasons given for the location are the area’s status as a hub for volunteer clubs and groups with similar community needs and spirit to a brigade as well as its central position in the suburb.

If approved, the brigade would have two appliances housed in a newly constructed station within the reserve, staffed with about 30 volunteer fire fighters.

A spokesperson for the premier told Echo News the southern corridor is one of the fastest growing areas in Perth and has a need for additional fire infrastructure.

The south-east area has few fire stations, with the closest career stations in Roleystone, Maddington and Midland and closest volunteer station in Kalamunda townsite.

The community information workshop will be held at Pickering Brook Sports Club from  4pm to 6pm on Tuesday, June 1.

If you wish to attend, RVSP to 9257 9999 by May 30.
