The Freemans Reach Brigade station was officially opened today! Although the RFS members have been using the station for a year, COVID-19 stopped the brigade from properly celebrating their brand-new space when it opened.
This $1.5 million station at Freemans Reach brings the brigade closer to the village. The original location was too far outside the village area.
The brigade began in 1951 and is an integral part of the community. This new station has 3 bays, training rooms, kitchen and storerooms and is a huge improvement on the old facility.
“Congratulations to brigade members – you deserve this excellent, new station and thank you to Hawkesbury City Council for providing the land and managing the project. It’s good to see state and local government working together for the community’s benefit.” said Robyn Preston MP at the opening ceremony.
Five members were honoured with Life Memberships for their contributions and service.
Captain Bruce Earle spoke about the strong history of the brigade and the benefits this new facility will bring. Listen to his short video
