The existing Fire Station 4 is more than 50 years old and no longer meets the needs of the community or the Bloomington Fire Department. The existing station does not have adequate space for firefighters to train or work at the existing station. The new station will provide enough room for safe operation of equipment and for firefighters to stay if they need to be on site for more than 24 hours.
Plans for the new Station 4 are currently in the development and design stages. The City will go out for bids on this project in the fall or winter of 2021 and construction is expected to begin in spring 2022. The new station will be constructed on the current site at 4201 West 84th Street.
