Fire Hall / Emergency Services Facility

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


In 2019 the City began moving forward in the planning process to construct a new Fire Hall / Emergency Services Facility.

Currently, an Emergency Services Facility Advisory Select Committee is meeting regularly to consider the current and future emergency response needs of the City, and the health and safety of our emergency personnel.

The City needs a new facility that can accommodate a modern Fire Rescue Department. Fire Hall #1 on Courteney Street and Joyce Avenue was to be a temporary facility. That was 25 years ago. That fire hall was built as an ancillary hall in 1959 and cannot accommodate needed expansion or be upgraded to post disaster standards (likely to remain standing and operational after a severe earthquake).

City Council had previously recommended the Barnet Street location. The Committee ultimately chose the Public Works Yard at 7160 Duncan Street as the preferred site and will make this recommendation to Council.
