The City of Windsor is moving ahead with construction of two new fire halls as part of the restructuring of the fire department, pending city council approval.

Windsor Fire’s new Station 2 will be constructed on the corner of Milloy Street and Chandler Road while a new Station 5 will be constructed an the corner of Northwood Street and Daytona Avenue.

Next Monday, city councillors will be asked to approve an expense of $9 million and authorize the city engineer to issue two tenders for their construction.

Each station will be 10,000 square feet and will provide living quarters for nine firefighters, a captain’s quarters with a capacity of three, a captain’s office, separate men’s and women’s washrooms and locker rooms, an exercise room, lounge, kitchen and dining room along with an outdoor patio and parking for twenty-three vehicles.

The two new fire halls will be similar in design to the existing Station 7, and the city says that they have achieved cost savings by using that design.

The new halls will replace the current Station 2 at Walker and Richmond and Station 5 on Cabana.

The city says that the two new halls must be ready by December 31st to meet the anticipated operational savings.
