Good news for residents in the Kingscliff area this morning with the announcement that there will be a new fire station.
Tweed MP Geoff Provest announced the $5.85 million commitment saying that firefighters in Kingscliff will be even better equipped to protect the community with a new state-of-the-art facility set to be built under a re-elected Liberals & Nationals Government.
‘The government is committed to building a new fire station at Kingscliff to help address the region’s growing population,’ he said.
‘Our local firies do a tremendous job, and while the existing station on Marine Parade has served them and our local community well for many years, it’s now time to update it with a bigger, better station for the future.’
Mr Provest said that every day of the week, firefighters put their lives on the line to keep people and property safe. ‘We’re ensuring they have the resources, infrastructure and facilities they need for that crucial work to continue.
‘I’m incredibly proud of this announcement.’
The new fire station will be built on a new site, once a suitable location has been secured and the construction tender process is finalised.
