Posted Friday, Oct. 4
We've started planning for this project, which includes identifying space (facility and equipment) needs for the fire station. We are also focusing on finding a location for fire headquarters and Fire Station 1.
Prepping for the design is taking longer than planned. Design plans are now expected to start in winter 2020 and should be finished the summer of 2021. Then, construction is expected to start in winter 2022.
The purpose of this project is to replace Fire Station 1, which is currently located at 220 S. Dawson Street, and the headquarters of Raleigh Fire Department, which is located at 310 W. Martin Street.
The new Fire Station 1 will be approximately 21,000 square feet and the office space for fire headquarters will be about 13,000 square feet. The new location also will include a parking deck for citizen and command/administrative use.

Fire Station 1 opened in 1953 and serves the downtown Raleigh area. The current station is one of three stations that still have a fire pole.
Fire headquarters houses command staff and administrative offices.
