How Did the City Select the Fire Station's Location?
  • That third-party study that looked at the need for a fire station also included a station location study that identified 4 parcels of land in a target area. That target area needed to show quicker response times to the southern portion of the city, access to the northwest area and also had to make sure as many businesses and residents as possible would fall within 5 road miles to help improve their insurance ratings.  
  • While a target area was selected, this specific location proved best because of its immediate access to Highways 52/55, Concord Blvd, and Barnes Avenue, which will allow crews to quickly get to all parts of the City.
  • The location was also based on demographics, density and travel distance for recruitment of present and future non-career Firefighters.
