Sneak peek of new fire station for Sydney’s south-west

Minister for Emergency Services Jihad Dib and Member for Liverpool Charishma Kaliyanda have previewed the new Busby Fire Station in Sydney’s growing south-west, one of many fire stations the NSW Government is investing in across the state.
The new facility is bigger than its 62-year-old predecessor, with enhanced training spaces, separate living and working areas, and modern bathroom facilities.
The station is the latest to serve the growing south-western Sydney region and has two engine bays – one more than the former building – as well as a drive-through option which makes it easier for vehicles to enter the building.
The station was designed with the feedback and input of local firefighting crews in mind, and it incorporates environmentally conscious features including solar panels to provide a complementary energy source for the station.
Busby Fire Station is one of a number of stations the NSW Government is delivering to accommodate growing populations and modern firefighting needs, with funding committed in the 2024-25 State Budget for new stations in Badgerys Creek, Charlestown and Byron Bay.
This is on top of fire station upgrade work currently underway, including the newly refurbished Coledale fire station which has now been completed in the Illawarra.
Minister for Emergency Services Jihad Dib said: “The new Busby fire station is important for the growing communities of south-west Sydney, and it will provide a modern base from which firefighters can operate.”
“The NSW Government is investing in FRNSW, with funding committed in the 2024-25 Budget for new fire stations in Badgerys Creek, Charlestown and Byron Bay.”
Member for Liverpool and Parliamentary Secretary for Emergency Services Charishma Kaliyanda
said: “The new Busby Fire Station marks the return of local fire services to residents of the 2168 area, who have been without an active station since 2022. I am so pleased to see this delivered by the Labor Government.”
“I have been fighting for this essential facility for a long time and have been closely following progress. I look forward to seeing the station in operation and seeing the Busby-based fire crews return to their home on Cartwright Avenue.”
Fire and Rescue NSW Commissioner Jeremy Fewtrell said: “We have listened to the needs and advice of the men and women who will be working in this
“We have provided weekly progress reports to our firefighters throughout the building process because we wanted to create the most comfortable and professional workspace available.”
