Fire Station 2, located at 2201 16th St, will be temporarily closed for asbestos abatement and major maintenance beginning March 1, 2019. The closure is expected to last until April 15, 2019.
The fire units housed at station 2 (Engine 2 and Aid 2) will temporarily relocate to 2801 Oakes Ave and still serve the same neighborhoods. An emergency phone will be available at station 2 during the closure, and units will respond there as needed.
The closure is necessary for major building maintenance, including the creation of separate facilities for female employees, and asbestos abatement.
Due to the temporary relocation of the station 2 units, response times to some locations may be impacted.
