BUILDING firm Considine and Johnston has completed the construction of Leongatha CFA’s new station but there’s still plenty of work to be done on the fit out.
Keys to the building have been handed over to corporate CFA in Melbourne so it can prepare for the local fire brigade to move in at the end of November.
“We handed it over about two weeks ago,” Ross Considine of Considine and Johnston said.
“The actual construction side of it is completed.
“They’re now able to get in and fit their own gear up.”
Captain Tristan Morton-Pederson of Leongatha CFA said corporate CFA would now fit the building with specialist technology including CFA communication systems and controls for the traffic lights.
Traffic lights to warn road and footpath users a tanker is about to emerge from the station were installed on Bair Street last week.
Captain Morton-Pedersen said VicRoads will take approximately six weeks to inspect and test the traffic lights.
He said the Leongatha fire brigade hoped to take possession of the building at the end of November, as a rough estimate.
Leongatha CFA secretary Gary Burns said the building will also have its floors sealed and a hose tower erected at the back of the site.
The new CFA building is located somewhere in the vicinity of Leongatha’s original fire station, before it moved to Anderson Street.
“It’s fairly close to the original site,” Captain Morton-Pedersen said.
