$1m set aside for Brassall Fire and Rescue Station

ALMOST $1 million from the State Budget has been allocated to complete the new Brassall Fire and Rescue Station, Police and Community Safety Minister Jack Dempsey has announced.

Mr Dempsey said Brassall station was expected to be operational early in the 2013-14 financial year.

"The new station will provide firefighters with the best available facility to help them respond to local emergencies," he said.

"I was pleased to be able to welcome 16 new QFRS officers to the Ipswich region recently and this completed facility will support them as they embark on their new careers."

Ipswich West MP Sean Choat said the new facility would allow crews to access the Warrego Hwy in less than a minute, making them an asset to the entire region.

"The Brassall station will give our firefighters access to the best equipment and technology possible which will help keep our community safe," he said.
