According to the reports, the staff of the Metropolitan Fire Service has found a new professional home in Port Lincoln.
Built on a whooping budget of nearly 5 million dollars, the officer in charge of the Port Lincoln MFS, John Wise said that the team is extremely excited to be at their new professional base.
According to the sources the new site boasts of various facilities that would cater to the crews around the clock.
Facilities like a full kitchen, bedrooms, recreation room, toilets and showers, a locker room, control room, general offices, and a room to store breathing apparatus equipment are all a part of this $4.75 million site.
Officials say that the crew has been working from the new site since the beginning of Aprils and have attended more than 30 call outs from the new site.
According to John Wise, despite the hefty budget the new station has been keeping in mind the future full time MFS service and the station also has a 60 year life span.
According to the reports, in the early discussions it was anticipated that the location on Saint Andrews Terrace could pose a problem since the road that leads into the town has stop sign and a railway crossing.
Responding to the reports, John Wise claimed that with an open communication with the Great Southern Railways, the issue has been addressed and sorted out.
