Local tenders invited for construction of RFS Facility at Cowra Airport


Local businesses and tradespeople are invited to tender for construction of the new NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Area Western Command Facility at Cowra Airport.

The facility will help the Western Area Command provide an even higher level of emergency service to the community.
NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Area Commander, Chief Superintendent Tim Butcher said this followed Cowra Shire Council’s development consent in November.
“The Facility will include the Area Command headquarters, a new station for the Waugoola Brigade and an airbase to manage district air operations,” he said.

“It is great to see the process underway and get one step closer to having this new facility for the local community and volunteer firefighters.
“Not only will the new Area Command facility house the team charged with supporting our Districts, the broader facility will also assist local firefighters on the ground and air to provide increased fire protection to the local community.”
Local businesses and tradespeople are invited to meet with the NSW Government pre-approved Tenderers to find out more about potential local involvement in this project.
An information session will be held at the RFS Waugoola Brigade Station at Cowra Airport at 3:30pm on 18 January 2021.
The successful tenderer is expected to be announced in March 2021 and the new facility fully operational by December 2021.
