Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Commissioner Greg Mullins today celebrated the completion of a $794,000 upgrade of Grenfell Fire Station.

Commissioner Mullins said the renovation brought Grenfell Fire Station, built 1929, up to modern standards with a new engine bay, and new operational and training facilities.

"It was my great pleasure to be at Grenfell today to celebrate this major investment in firefighting resources," Commissioner Mullins said.

"The improved facilities will provide a bigger and better base for the 12 firefighters who protect Grenfell and surrounding communities from fires, accidents, chemical spills and other emergencies.

"It will boost their ability to continue their work in keeping our community safe and protected from fires and other emergencies.

"The new engine bay and watch room have been upgraded to better meet the crew’s operational needs.

"The old engine bay has been transformed into a new training facility and staff accommodation, including a kitchen. There's also a specially-designed breathing apparatus service and storage area, and storage facilities."
