Members Statements - Hamilton airbase

Victorian Parliament - 19 March 2019 - Ms KEALY: I urge the Andrews Labor government to finally fund the second stage of the Hamilton CFA-EMV airbase, a key wish from the Gazette CFA brigade at the time of the St Patrick’s Day fires and which still remains their greatest priority for our region. The Hamilton CFA-EMV airbase is the only CFA‑operated air base in Victoria, with over 40 volunteers and an aerodrome which is recognised as the primary aerial fire support facility across all of western Victoria. This project will provide a safe workplace for CFA volunteers and enable quicker filling of aerial fire support. It will save lives and save property. I urge Labor to immediately fund this project.
