The Fire Station 4 reconstruction continues at 4201 West 84th Street. With the outside of the structure, foundation, roof, curb and gutters completed, crews are inside framing walls, setting bricks and installing electrical, mechanical and plumbing.

The new station will include three truck bays, office space, a training room, living accommodations and firefighters’ health and safety amenities. The entire structure is more than 25,000 square feet. Construction is expected to be complete in summer 2023.

In 2020, the station responded to more than 850 calls. In 2021, that number jumped to 843 calls between January and March alone. To provide continuous fire coverage to the area serviced by Fire Station 4, Stations 1 and 6 have been staffed with 24-hour, three-person crews.

The old fire station served the community for more than 50 years, but it lacked adequate space and no longer met health and safety needs. For more information about this and other stations, visit
