Equipment - Aldgate Station

Aldgate Station Location

Aldgate Station, 21 Strathalbyn Road, Aldgate

The original Aldgate Emergency Fire Service Station was built in XXXX by XX. It was a three-bay shed, and underwent many additions and alterations, enabling it to support more members and new, larger appliances. Finally the greatly modified station, along with its unique charm and character, was demolished in 2007 for the building of a new station.

9 years coming, the new station was finally approved in early 2007. The Brigade moved to a temporary shed for the cold winter months, and moved into the new station in August, 2008. The station was officially opened by XX on XX, Sept, 2008 at a Brigade Open Day.

Aldgate Station has three vehicle bays, but currently only houses two appliances, Aldgate 12 and Aldgate 24Pumper. Long-term considerations for the third bay include a Bulk Water Carrier or Quick Attack Vehicle. Also located in the Appliance Bays is the Brigade turn-out gear and wet-weather gear, BA trough, washing machine, workbench and storage racks.
