Work continues on the St Kilda
Fire Station, in Queens Dr, Dunedin, this week.
The station was built in 1964 and, apart from some structural
work in 1991, has had only minor repairs carried out over the
past 50 years.
The upgrade includes structural strengthening, a new
sprinkler and fire alarm system, reroofing, locker room and
decontamination wash facility, new open-plan office and
bedroom refurbishment. The project is expected to be
completed by early to mid November.
St Kilda firefighters are based at the Dunedin City Station
during the work.
East Otago area commander Laurence Voight said response times
to the South Dunedin area had not been affected.
