Constituency Question – Port Fairy CFA/SES joint Base

My question is to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, and I ask her for the latest information on plans to move the Port Fairy CFA and Port Fairy SES into a new joint facility.

Minister, as you would be aware, there are long-held plans for both the CFA and the SES, who are both currently in facilities that are not fit for purpose. As I have mentioned in this place several times before the SES is facing the possibility of being without a home in the near future.

The plan has been to build a new facility where Port Fairy’s ambulance station was located on the Princes Highway until its recent move into the new station at the town’s hospital.

With Ambulance Victoria now moving from the site, Minister, can you provide information about when the CFA and SES volunteers can expect to see their new facility begin construction?
