$2.2M fire station to be built in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS – On Thursday, fire officials revealed the construction plan for a new fire station to be built in Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs mayor, Steve Bach, signed a contract with Northgate Properties to construct a new fire house in northern Colorado Springs.

Starting on or before August 1, 2015, Fire Station 22 will be built at the intersection of Voyager Parkway and Copper Center.

The 2.2 million dollar fire station will be a two-story fire station that will host three vehicle bays, according to Colorado Springs Fire Department.

“With recent growth in the northern part of our city, it is vital to provide this enhanced level of service to residents in that area. The addition of Fire Station 22 will allow our firefighters to provide better coverage for the city to protect the lives and property of our citizens,” said Colorado Springs Fire Chief Christopher P. Riley.

Officials say they expect the new fire station to bring response times down to approximately 8 minutes, 90 percent of the time.

Colorado Springs Fire Department says they expect the new facility to be completed by March 31, 2016.
