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.
The Bison Drive/Brady Road area is being proposed as a location for a future station to provide good coverage to current and future development in the area.
A station in the area of Bison Road and Brady Road is 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.
