New Fire Station Location and Design Approved

The Fort Erie Fire Department is excited to announce that council has approved the purchase of land and design for the new fire station in the “North End”. This new station will be built to replace the existing station 2 on Jarvis Street, and will be designed to ensure that the station meets the needs of the area for the next 50 + years.

Located adjacent to the railway museum on Central Ave (click here for area map), this site has the benefit of complimenting the existing park and museum, and will be a big asset to the community as a whole. We would like the station to be open, and fully functional, by the spring of 2013

Also, The volunteers from station 2 will be going door to door in the near future, looking for anyone who would be interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter. If you have ever wondered what it takes to be a firefighter, drop by the Jarvis Street station on October 18, 2011 at 7 p.m.. Current firefighters will be in attendance to give you a quick tour and ask any questions that you may have.

Pleased check back in the next week or so for more information on becoming a volunteer firefighter at any station in town.

    I have to clarify, council has approved the purchase of the land, and awarded the contract for the architect to start the design of the fire station. The station is in the conceptual stages of design, and we are hoping that the full design is complete by January 2012. I don’t want anyone to think that the station design is approved.
