An Andrews Labor Government is committed to building a new station for the Edithvale CFA, supporting our hard working firefighters who work tirelessly to keep the local community safe.

Minister for Emergency Services, Jane Garret joined member for Mordialloc, Tim Richardson MP to reaffirm Labor’s commitment to build a new station.

The local firefighters are supportive of the planned new station which will include additional bays, offices, training facilities and car parking.

Recently a project Control Board team was established to oversee the project, comprising of representatives from the CFA, City of Kingston, and local elected representatives including Tim Richardson MP.

Over the past 12 months the Edithvale CFA has attended 88 fires and explosions, 53 protected premises and high-risk structures, 50 motor vehicle accidents and 18 hazardous material incidents.

Edithvale CFA has had a long and proud history of serving and protecting our community since its establishment in 1925. It is an entirely volunteer brigade, supported by over 80 local members who play a vital role in keeping our region safe.
