Fire Station 17

Project Description

Rapid growth and development in the county will require a new fire station to maintain the current level of service to residents. Development and new home construction near Tucker’s Grade or South Gasparilla Rd areas will require the
purchase of property and construction of a new fire station. The location is to be determined based on which area booms first. Maintain rapid response time in an area of significant population growth, to minimize loss of life and property damage and perform vital emergency medical services to our citizens.
