Fire Station 4 Construction

Sections

Changes are coming to Fire Station 4 located at 4201 West 84th Street. This fire station has been serving the community for over 50 years and has reached the end of its useful life. The station lacks adequate space for equipment and doesn’t meet the health and safety needs of the firefighters.

The new fire station will increase from 4,429 sq. ft. to a two-story structure, plus a partial basement totaling approximately 25,578 sq. ft. The new building will include 3 bays, office space, a training room, living accommodations and firefighter’s health and safety amenities. More details will be provided as design continues.

On March 14, 2022 the Fire Department turned over the existing fire station to begin the year long project to demolish and reconstruction Fire Station 4. During this period the Construction Management Team, Terra Construction, will have a job trailer and laydown yard across the street at the Wanda Miller Pond Site. To accommodate parking for the construction crews, St. Stephens Church has graciously offered their parking lot for weekday use.

During construction it is anticipated that the sidewalk in front of the fire station will remain closed to pedestrian traffic with proper signage notifying residents of the closure. The project team will be monitoring the traffic flow on this busy street and developing plans to minimize the disruption to motorists.

To provide continuous fire coverage for the area serviced by Fire Station 4 the department is staffing Station 1 and 6 with 24-hour three person duty crews to provide adequate response time to the area.
