Current Activity

Construction for this project is underway. Construction crews recently finished the demolition of the current fire station. Next, the concrete pad for the fire station entrance will be put in place and a sand filter will be installed under the parking lot to capture stormwater runoff from the building.

Fire Station 6 is currently closed and is temporarily relocated to Fire Station 5 (300 Oberlin Road). The Emergency Communication Center has adjusted the dispatch for all surrounding fire companies and no impacts for fire protection are expected.


The purpose of this project is to demolish and build a new fire station at 2601 Fairview Road. The new fire station will be 14,990 square feet and will consist of two equipment bays. Work for this project includes clearing and grading the current site; filling and backfilling the worksite; connecting utilities; putting in an asphalt parking area; and creating reinforced concrete "fire truck aprons" or bases and sidewalks around the station.

Renovations to the fire station include structural, electrical, interior, and landscaping work.
