A RE-elected Coalition government will fund the relocation of the Cobram SES and CFA.
Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells made the promise when he visited the town earlier this week alongside Murray Valley MP and Ovens Valley candidate Tim McCurdy.
The Coalition will provide $200,000 to buy the land that would allow the services to move to a new site.
Housing emergency services is a trend that towns in Victoria are moving toward. Tallangatta CFA and SES moved into new, combined premises earlier this year, with both organisations saying it brought benefits when training volunteers and responding to emergencies.
Mr McCurdy said the Cobram SES’s 34 volunteers attended about 80 calls a year, while the 40-strong CFA brigade responded to 130 working from a 55-year-old station.
