ESA Station upgrade and relocation strategy

Improving Community Safety

Project overview

The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) Station Upgrade and Relocation Program (SURP) is about improving community safety for Canberrans as the city expands and the population grows. Strategically locating ESA stations to better service the needs and expectations of the community will save more lives, property and the environment.

Extensive analysis has been undertaken into where stations should be located in the Territory to meet current and projected demand.
