The Salisbury CFS celebrated the official Opening of its new station , on 23rd May 2004. Around 100 people attended the day, including the Premier, and local member, Mike Rann, CFS CEO Euan Ferguson, and Mayor Tony Zappia.

During the ceremony, Mike Rann, and Jennfier Rankin MP, both members of the Salisbury CFS, were presented with Level 1 Training Certificates.

The new station was originally a Crash Repair business, with extensive shedding. The building has undergone a transformation, to create a fire station any brigade could be proud of.

The Station consists of a huge engine bay, with enough space to double the number of appliances, a communications room, a large meeting room, kitchen, shower and toilets, office area for brigade officers, an enclosed training area, equipment storage area, and a spray booth, potentially for a Breathing Apparatus training area.

Photographs of the station are on display on the Salisbury CFS page of this website
