Our Infrastructure Projects
Land and Buildings Program
We recorded unprecedented levels of construction in
2010-11 through our Land and Buildings Program, with
$36.2 million spent on 61 completed projects. This was
accomplished in a challenging tendering environment considering the impact of the Government’s Building the Education Revolution Program and rising building costs in
Water Tank Program
We rolled out the $2.1 million government-funded Water Tank Program at 295 locations.
Office Accommodation Survey
A statewide office accommodation survey was completed to establish a plan for office accommodation requirements in the future.
Fleet Appliance Programs
The $20.7 million appliance manufacturing program delivered:
- seven tankers
- 46 pumpers
- two specialist vehicles
- four aerial pumpers
- 22 tankers for the Community Safety Emergency Support Program (CSESP).
Further planning and design specification development was undertaken for the following future production programs.
- heavy tanker – planned for production in 2011-12
- medium tanker – planned for production in 2011-12
- mobile command vehicle (large) – incorporates satellite technology, to replace existing aged units.
Design, prototype installation and component tenders
were completed before year’s end, and we will begin the
$22.1 million crew protection system retrofit program in
July 2011. The program is planned to be completed by July 2013.
At CFA it’s very satisfying to work towards making firefighters’ lives safer; to have that human focus.David Nichols, Manager of Research and Development
