We are leading an innovative and ambitious approach to regional emergency services management with the establishment of a multi-purpose co-ordination, response and training facility at the Albury Airport.

We are leading an innovative and ambitious approach to regional emergency services management with the establishment of a multi-purpose co-ordination, response and training facility at the Albury Airport.

We will prepare a design brief in consultation with stakeholders for extensions and alterations to the existing Emergency Management Centre 25 Airport Drive, East Albury, for the engagement of a consultant to develop full design documentation and tender documentation for the second stage.

The expanded centre will provide a new home for the Local State Emergency Service (SES) as well as joint training facilities for emergency service agencies.

The completion of the AREMC Stage 2 will provide a series of operational buildings surrounding a central, multi-purpose core, storage sheds and car parking. The centre would include:

  • The headquarters for emergency response agencies such as the SES & RFS
  • The Albury Regional Operations Centre – this centre would be available for use in emergency management events by AlburyCity, Greater Hume Shire and surrounding local government areas as required
  • An alternative NSW Police operational site and a Federal Police command centre in the advent of a major incident, including airport security and response to terrorism related events
  • A state of the art training facility, which will be available for all emergency service groups to utilise
  • Communications equipment, including GIS mapping
  • Training theatrette including equipment
  • A commercial kitchen, toilets and conference meeting areas for community use
  • Car parking, and
  • Storage for vehicles and equipment.

This expanded facility will provide great opportunity for inter-agency cooperation and training.
