Cleveland council members approved nearly $1 million to renovate the city’s fire stations to better accommodate mixed-gender crews, reports Cleveland 19 News.
The bulk of the funds will go toward separated sleeping quarters, as well as showering and toileting facilities for women.
Fire Station 11 has served as a pilot facility for renovations. Walls and doors were installed to convert sleeping areas into individual rooms.
The renovations are expected to be completed in 2025.
