Beginning today, Monday, November 29, and continuing through Monday, December 27, Fire Station #3, located at 4701 Fort Avenue, will temporarily close for renovations. The renovations, including a building addition, will include a new kitchen, an updated locker room and a new training/common area.
During the closure, staff at Station #3 will be temporarily assigned to other City fire stations. According to Fire Chief Greg Wormser, residents living in the areas normally serviced by the Fort Hill station will not see a noticeable difference in response times during the closure. “We want residents to know that serving the community by protecting lives and property is always our first priority. We fully intend to respond to calls consistent with our operations while the station undergoes renovations.”
