When placing stations, the goal is to strategically locate fixed facilities (fire stations) to ensure the department can meet the established travel time benchmark (4 minutes or less, 90% of the time). This map (4-minute current coverage) illustrates the current coverage capabilities from Station 1 and Station 2.
To understand where service gaps exist, this map illustrates the call volume of emergency incidents that occurred over a five-year period and are outside of the 4-minute response times from Station 1 and Station 2.
PROPOSED STATION NO 3 LOCATION - 2100 N. Roosevelt AVE.
This illustration depicts the proposed Station NO 3's 4-minute response coverage. The new station will serve a population of 6235 residents with an assessed property valuation of $6.4 million.
