THE countdown is on to the opening of Pomona's new fire station in Reserve St, adjacent to the ambulance station.

Finishing touches are being put to the $1.5 million new asset to our district.

It replaces the old fire station in Factory St which was subject to inundation from floodwaters from the subway.

The new fire station now creates a Queensland Fire and Emergency Services precinct with not just the ambulance service next door, but the police station and court house around the corner in Red St.

The large shed has been designed to be big enough to house large fire trucks together with a 4WD fire-fighting vehicle.

The office building has been designed to blend in with the existing surrounds and consists of not just an office, but storerooms for equipment, training room, and showers.
