Construction of two permanent fire stations continues underway for Queen Creek, reports YourValley.net.
The town currently has five fire stations. The two, new stations are identical in design and square footage. The new fire stations will be about 13,300 square feet total.
The new buildings will be divided into three sections. The first section will increase the capacity for the number of firefighters to 10. The second portion of the stations will have three apparatus bays. A third section will include turnout storage, laundry facilities, a small storage room, work room and station gyms.
The budget for Station No. 2 is $8.5 million and for Station No. 5 it is $9.1 million. The fire chief said he expects more stations to come online as Queen Creek grows and response-time goals must be met.
