As part of the Victorian Government's $125 million investment in Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) facility infrastructure, the VICSES Port Fairy Unit will be relocated from 81 Sackville Street, to 116 Princes Highway, Port Fairy.
The new fit-for-purpose facility will reflect VICSES' commitment and dedication to the local community and enable an expansion of local services while supporting the retention and recruitment of new volunteers.
The Unit will be co-located with the new Country Fire Authority (CFA) Port Fairy station, currently being constructed at the former site of Ambulance Victoria.
Funding for the new VICSES Port Fairy facility is part of the Government's High Priority Infrastructure Program and will be delivered by the Emergency Services Infrastructure Authority, part of the Community Safety Building Authority.
In collaboration with VICSES, we are undertaking considerable consultation with the Port Fairy Unit, as well as the local council, affected parties and the local community (as required), to ensure that the new facility meets the needs of a growing community, now and into the future.
