Proposed new facility: Waverley West station
Increased development, high service demand, and a lack of additional resources on the western edge of WFPS's current service area are negatively affecting emergency response performance in the Waverley West area and beyond, exceeding the industry standard total response time.
Consultants proposed adding a station in the Bison Drive/Brady Road area to provide good coverage to current and future development in the area. While the exact location proposed was unavailable, WFPS has secured available land at the closest appropriate location.
The new facility will be within four minutes travel of all the service demand currently beyond four minutes travel of the existing stations. Additionally, this location would increase response reliability and the concentration of resources available on the southwestern perimeter of the WFPS service area.
Any proposed new station would be subject to Council’s approval of the project and budget.
