The new auxiliary facility in Craignish was constructed to resolve the service delivery requirements in one of the growth areas of Hervey Bay to meet the operational and accommodation requirements of Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS).
Design, development and construction of the New Auxilary Fire Station included:
- A two bay appliance shed
- Office accommodation
- Training facilities
- Staff amenities
- Utility areas
The facilities were designed with sustainability in mind, including a 50,000 litre rainwater tank, solar electrical and hot water system, motion sensor lighting, external louvers and skylights. This new Craignish facility is now operational and providing a full urban auxiliary fire service to support the local community in the areas of Craignish, Dundowran, Toogoom, Nikenbah, Booral, East Booral and all surrounding areas of Hervey Bay.
