Definitely not a station in Byford. Serpentine will become a fully career and metro station from this Sunday. Dawesville should be up and running shortly with a split career/volunteer crew in the days and volunteers at night.

Ellenbrook will also start this Sunday, with a "day" ambulance.

In Ellenbrook, new depot not built yet.

Ellenbrook Day Van currently operating out of Landsdale until the new depot is ready.

I'm not surprised, I was there for 12 months and it was a very busy station for vollies.

How far is the Dawsville Station from Mandurah, at least its an option for the vollies formally at Mandurah.

4 days shifts only for a para. That's not bad. No night shifts at all.

I'd be very happy if that was my temporary depot. New building, lots of garage space. Better than a few of the depots I've seen in my time.
