Ocean City Fire Department’s midtown Station 3 remaining where it is, reports The Dispatch.
In recent years, resort officials have debated moving the aging and outgrown Station 3 at 74th Street to the vast parking area along Coastal Highway in front of the Public Safety Building. In fact, the city agreed to spend $30,000 for a feasibility study of moving the station to 65th Street.
The firehouse was built in 1969 and expanded in 1987. It has been part of a larger fire station multi-year strategic plan that has included a complete rebuild of fire headquarters at 15th Street and the rebuild of Station 4, or the Montego Bay station.
