Construction for this project is more than halfway finished. The contractor installed: 

  • Stormwater runoff devices;
  • The foundation for the building;  
  • Building walls and roof steel work; and,
  • Interior metal framing. 
Now, the contractor is working on plumbing, heating and air conditioning, electrical, the exterior/roof. Due to a few construction delays earlier this year, work should be finished in Spring 2020. 

Fire Station 6 is currently closed and is temporarily relocated to Fire Station 5 at 300 Oberlin Road. The Emergency Communication Center 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.
