Coffs Harbour to receive new aviation fire station

COFFS Harbour is set to receive a new $11.4 million aviation rescue fire station.

Airservices Australia has announced the project in line with national aviation requirements. 

Airservices' Mark Rodwell, said the new fire station was being built following a sustained increase in passenger numbers, which took the airport above the regulatory trigger for an aviation fire service.

"Coffs Harbour Airport is one of the largest and busiest regional airports in New South Wales, handling a number of different types of aircraft," Mr Rodwell said.

"Last year there were more than 27,000 aircraft movements through the airport, carrying more than 350,000 passengers.

"This increase in growth has necessitated the introduction of aviation fire rescue services at Coffs Harbour."

The new fire station will include two vehicle bay, a vehicle maintenance bay, a workshop and administration areas.

Additional onsite training facilities will include a classroom and a combined cold smoke, gas fire and ladder access training facility.
