Upgrading the facility

The station has a large meeting room, with fresh office and kitchen facilities, a laundry and drying room, and a two-bay motor room that has enough space to house the brigade's tanker and pumper. The design of the expansive rear yard is suitable for the training of new and existing volunteers, with a threebay storage shed and a hose-drying tower to better maintain the brigade's equipment.

The brigade consists of 11 operational members, with a total membership of 42 volunteers who have responded to approximately 140 requests for assistance this year. The brigade has been servicing the local community for almost 90 years, and is located within District 27, forming part of the Merton Group.

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing said, "I'm incredibly grateful for the dedicated volunteers at the Moe Fire Brigade and am proud to officially open their impressive new fire station. With summer approaching, this new station will not only have a positive impact on the volunteers at the brigade, but also on the entire Moe community."
