The Fire Station 8 building (located at 4845 Lee Highway) is aging and will be replaced with a new facility better suited to meet Fire and Emergency Medical Service program needs. The existing station doesn’t meet current standards that includes four apparatus bays to accommodate equipment requirements and gender-neutral accommodations for staff.
The new fire station will be a two-story building with a total floor area of approximately 15,000 square feet. The station will occupy 0.75 to 1.5 acres to provide drive-through bays for the apparatus and adequate staff parking.
In the winter of 2016, the County Board appointed a Task Force to provide recommendations on the location of the replacement fire station; their work was completed in the spring with final staff recommendations and a County Board decision to remain at the current site.
