Community open day marks fire station’s reopening

Old Redcliffe Fire Station has been at the heart of the Moreton Bay community for many decades, so it seems only fitting that its reopening should bring local people together.

A community open day is scheduled for 28 February and will show off the fire station's recent renovation work, which has been carried out in a way that's sympathetic to its original features.

It first opened back in 1949 and was closed down in 2008 so the refit could get underway.

Division Six councillor Koliana Winchester explained that the station would now serve a new purpose for local people and be reintroduced back into their lives.

"From the end of the month, the Old Fire Station's appliance garage, fire fighters' recreation and dormitory areas, and the fire chief's residence take on a new life as a community art gallery, extensive workshop space and meeting facilities for local volunteer groups," noted Ms Winchester.

You're invited to take a look between 12 pm and 2 pm, where there will be a sausage sizzle and live music, as well as the opportunity to see what has been done to the old fire station.

If you've yet to make the move to the area, get in touch with a real estate agent in Burpengary today.
