Fire and Rescue NSW are now in Oran Park with a state of the art, brand new fire station located on the corner of Dick Johnson Drive and Southwell Road.
The Oran Park Fire Station was officially opened Monday 27 February 2023 by the Minister for Emergency Services and Resilience Steph Cooke, Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves, Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies, Camden Mayor Therese Fedeli and Fire and Rescue NSW Commissioner Paul Baxter.
The $6.1 Million facility will significantly enhance emergency response capability in Oran Park and the south west growth corridor. The Oran Park station is one of 336 Fire and Rescue stations around the state and will work within the network of fire stations to respond to emergencies to protect the community.
The Oran Park Fire Station will have a permanent crew of firefighters operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and will see the addition of 32 permanent firefighting jobs. It includes separate amenities and rest areas for both female and male firefighters, designated ‘clean firefighter’ areas to eliminate carcinogen contamination, training areas and fitness facilities.
It also has two firefighting appliances with specialised HAZMAT capability which are able to respond to dangerous chemical, biological or other toxic incidents.
We welcome Fire and Rescue NSW to our community and thank them for helping to keep our community safe.
