Breaking ground on Fire Station 3

To better serve the community, the City is building a new Fire Station 3 at 2301 86th Street East. The existing Station 3 is 50 years old and no longer meets the needs of the community or Bloomington Fire. The new station will allow for adequate equipment storage, address health and safety issues for firefighters and be more energy efficient. 

“This new fire station with its greater capacity and capabilities will enable firefighters to serve the whole community and the growing South Loop area better,” Bloomington Fire Chief Ulie Seal said. 

The City is using South Loop funds to build the new Station 3. Firefighters who work out of Station 3 were involved in the design process from the beginning. Stations 2, 4, 5 and 6 also need to be replaced in the future. 

Construction on Station 3 is expected to wrap up in spring 2020.
