A new $718,000 Rural Fire Service station has been officially opened at Narrabri Airport to service the growing local population and be a base for the Namoi-Gwydir Brigade aviation section.
The new station will be home to the Deep Creek brigade and has been located at the airport to be in proximity to RFS water tanks and water bomber operations in bushfire season.
The new facility, opened by NSW RFS assistant commissioner Rebel Talbert, includes three vehicle bays, offices, meeting room, kitchen and other amenities.
Previously, RFS vehicles and equipment had been stored at volunteers’ properties.
Assistant Commissioner Talbert had earlier opened the new $59,000 Upper Maules Creek RFS station.
