How did you select the proposed site?

The overall goal of Station 3 is to improve fire and EMS service delivery by decreasing response times in the underserved areas of Burlington, specifically the northwest side. Since October 2018, the Burlington Fire Department has operated an ambulance-only, “temporary” Station 3 at 3400 Mt. Pleasant Street in Burlington. 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).
