Letters: Alternative to the new Bundaberg fire station

Letters: RE: THE new Bundaberg fire station.

To me the best option for a new fire station would be to leave two units and support vehicles at the existing station.

And build the new station with two units plus ambulance station at or adjacent to the airport.

This would do two things.

First, provide the airport with quick response emergency vehicles when needed.

Secondly, provide the emergency services for the ever-expanding areas west and south of Bundaberg.

To complete the effectiveness of the three stations, Airport, CBD and Kalkie, Johanna Blvd should be connected to the Ring Rd with a connection to Edenbrook Dr.
